Course Overview

The course will be delivered online via Zoom with the aim to support organisations to design their recruitment practices in an inclusive and equitable way. Following the pilot programme, which was completed in March 2022, one of the biggest benefits which organisations who attended valued the most was networking with others and learning how inclusive recruitment worked in other places.

Who is this course for?

Attendees could be from the HR team, a project or hiring manager, the Chair of an internal EDI committee, a department Head or a Director. The important thing is that attendees are willing to share thoughts and the knowledge gained about best inclusive recruitment practice within and across their own organisations.
