3 Diversity Hiring Strategies (In One Graphic) You Can Implement Today

It’s no secret that more companies are looking to diversity recruiting initiatives as a way to spark innovation on their teams, especially as data continues to show the competitive advantage of pursuing diversity and inclusion. But building inclusive teams that give members with different backgrounds opportunities to be heard is challenging… How can we overcome language barriers, accessibility issues, and improve company cultures? And how can we create teams where members feel included across time zones, continents, and lifestyles? Even more daunting, how do we measure our success? These are just a few of the questions that were tackled at the SF Tech Inclusion 2016 conference, an event centered around diversity and inclusion initiatives for both global brands and budding startups.

After two days at the conference we boiled down three actionable strategies in this infographic that you can implement today to reach your D&I objectives for your teams (scroll to the end of this post for additional resources!).

 


Additional Learnings

The Women Tech Leaders Keynote Panel with Melinda Briana Epler (Change Catalyst), Heather Friedland (Glassdoor), Yumi Clark (Capital One), Ana Arriola (Samsung), and Jewell Parkinson (SAP North America).

The Diversity and Inclusion keynote reiterated that ignoring inclusion objectives guarantees low retention of diversity candidates in the long term, and that Psychological Safety through empathy is the key to avoiding a loss of integrity and motivation from employees.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.
