This toolkit provides the resources needed when engaging best practices for attracting, selecting, and hiring diverse talent and mitigating biases found in the recruiting, selection and hiring process.
The University of Florida’s Inclusive Hiring Badge is designed to provide faculty and staff with the level of knowledge, skill and abilities needed to demonstrate inclusive practices during the hiring process, identify and mitigate biases that can affect hiring decisions and support the University’s advancement toward a more equitable workforce and candidate experience.
The course covers how to implement inclusive hiring strategies that help to minimize bias, how to prepare a job description or position profile that’s inclusive, how to advertise the position to attract a diverse group of applicants, and how to establish behavioral based interview questions and anchor answers that support inclusive hiring.
I saw this program as a responsibility for my position, so I can best support all our hiring processes to be inclusive and non-biased.
