Katharine Pei, MEd
Director, First Year Programs, Washington University

Hiring managers strive to develop an equitable recruitment and selection process when open positions come available in their organization. While most of us have the best intentions, it can sometimes be difficult to ensure an unbiased selection process given limited resources and time. Compound this by adding in colleagues and community partners to assist with interviews and candidate evaluation and our best intentions are not always met, leading to inadvertent biases in the hiring process.

This session will provide an overview to the types of biases and well-intentioned behaviors and actions that may impact your new hire process. Participants will leave with tangible suggestions and action items for how to develop a consistent and equitable recruitment and selection process.

Class size is limited to 35.
