Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility in Talent Architecture
Presentation Synopsis: Today's highly competitive job market has made talent acquisition more challenging than ever before. At the same time, simply attracting qualified talent is proving to not be enough. How do you engage your teams to amplify performance, and hire for diverse perspectives, skills, and potential? How do you move from talking about the lack of qualified candidates and the labour shortage to how to onboard the most qualified and diverse candidates that will add to your culture?
Juliet will combine her 30 years of experience in IT staffing architecture and her EDI&A experience to answer these questions by providing real-life scenarios, case studies and Canadian data. Moving the conversation from the questions of “why” to “how”; Juliet will provide examples of how organizations have been “consciously inclusive” in the hiring process, hiring for “culture add” versus culture fit, as well as building more diversity into their leadership while mobilizing stakeholders to enable sustainability.
