Did you know that recruiters and hiring managers take an average of only 7.4 seconds to review a candidate’s resumé? Using a mock resumé,  we will review and identify candidate information and credentials that can create assumptions, judgements and unconscious bias.  Learn best practices to help reinforce awareness about bias and its impact on an organization’s talent selection process.  This session is recommended for anyone in your organization who reviews resumés and conducts interviews.

•             Define unconscious bias and its role in resumé screening

•             Identify candidate information and credentials that may create unconscious bias

•             Discuss best practices to minimize the impact of unconscious bias when recruiting
