Beyond Diversity & Bias Training: Building Intersectional Race Equity
Facilitated by Fiona Kanagasingam, Co-Founder, BIPoC Project, this session is for Human Resources teams, hiring managers, and decision-makers seeking to transform hiring authentically without tokenizing.
Organizations often begin their equity journeys with enhanced hiring, yet struggle with how to fully embed equity not just diversity in the process, how to build systems of accountability that translate intent to action, and how to transform hiring authentically without tokenizing historically marginalized candidates and staff. This workshop will support participants with:
• Enhanced alignment on why an explicit process to center race+ equity, beyond diversity, in hiring is needed;
• Identification of critical choice-points to integrate equity considerations meaningfully through the hiring life cycle; and
• Engagement with protocols and tools to interrupt systemic bias in the hiring process, assess candidates with an equity lens, pause for consideration of equity impacts, and hold decision-makers accountable for equity considerations.
The workshop will also offer participants a hiring protocol resource, including a customizable rubric to adapt for candidate interviews.
