Dimensions of Bias in Hiring is my most requested keynote for employers, HR professionals, and recruiters.

Diversity. Equity. Inclusion. Belonging. Justice.

As a recruiter, I’ve struggled for years with a conundrum:

 

Why is there so much talk about these urgent issues …

 

 … yet so little actual progress diversifying hiring outcomes?

Hiring is rife with bias. And it’s not just the big bad isms and phobias. There are dimensions of bias unique to hiring that go unseen and unnamed.

 

In this keynote, I name these dimensions of bias in hiring, and discusses what we can do to overcome them.

 

That’s what my Dimensions of Bias in Hiring keynote is all about.

Its purpose is ... 

  • To name unseen dimensions of bias in recruiting and hiring.
     

  • To change how we think about bias, and how it influences recruiting and hiring.
     

  • To change business practices to reduce bias in recruiting and hiring, and diversify hiring outcomes.

ask the recruiter

Ask the Recruiter is my most requested keynote for individuals, about job search and career advancement.

There is so much confusion and misunderstanding (and often, frustration and even panic) around how to look for jobs, and how to manage our careers for upward mobility.

 

Too often, our search for opportunities faces a demoralizing “wall of silence.”


As an executive recruiter, I’ve spent years behind that “wall of silence,” working with hiring decision-makers and gatekeepers. I know their thinking, behaviors and processes.

 

I love sharing those secrets, to guide people past the hiring “wall of silence” to reach their career goals.

 

That’s what my Ask the Recruiter keynote is all about.

Its purpose is ... 

  • To expose poorly understood ways recruiting and hiring processes work.
     

  • To empower people with insights and self-confidence to navigate their job search or career advancement goals.
     

  • To educate people about how to build productive relationships with recruiters, to get more career opportunities.
