Hack Diversity by Capitalizing on Human Potential

Recording: Hack Diversity by Capitalizing on Human Potential, Mar 12, 2019

Despite the best intentions, many organizations still fail at attracting, promoting and retaining diverse talent. This begs the question, is there a better way? Our panel reveals how focusing on potential vs. competencies alone, can unlock an organization's capacity to hire and promote diverse talent. The ability to objectively and accurately assess what someone is truly capable of in the long term is critical to achieving a truly diverse and inclusive workplace. Focusing on potential, enables organizations to make the right investments in the right people, especially those who might have been denied opportunities due to unconscious and overt bias. In this session, we will show leaders how to "hack diversity" by assessing talent with a focus on potential.
