NEWS & EVENTS

FEB 7 |Open Call: Bias in Resumes

Academic research has shown recruiters read resumes in a systematic pattern, taking 6.25 seconds to make a yes/no decision! Add implicit recruiter bias to the vetting process, and it's shocking any resume advances to candidate status.

This session will review implicit name, gender, age and motherhood bias and how bias manifests in resume review. We will also learn ways minorities are beating bias, and what WE can do to diminish implicit bias in resume review.
