Anti-Bias in Hiring
We believe a key lever to rooting out inequity in the workplace is to implement hiring practices that intentionally mitigate bias. This course is designed to support your HR leaders, hiring teams, and staff to recognize the science of bias and the ways in which it leads to disparate outcomes in hiring. This course will also provide tools and resources for creating more equitable hiring practices and help your staff commit to actions that will disrupt and mitigate bias in hiring.

What this course is NOT
This course is not a racism 101 course. To get the most out of this experience, participants should be familiar with power, privilege, oppression, and the history of race and racism in the United States.
While this course will provide some basic concepts and building of shared language, participants should be comfortable engaging in explicit conversations about race and identity.
