Asking the Right Questions: How to Have More Meaningful Conversations about DE&I

We spend a significant amount of time at work and therefore ensuring that a prospective employer promotes a culture that you believe in is an important ingredient to long-term job satisfaction. Evaluating an organization or firm’s perspective on and commitment to DE&I is a great place to start in determining what kind of culture or values you can expect to see if you were to start there as an employee.

Reducing Bias in the Interview Process

Traditional interviews can be prone to bias, may not provide a complete picture of the candidate’s abilities, and may not be a reliable predictor of job performance. As a result, organizations may benefit from using additional assessment tools, such as competency or behavioural interviews, to supplement traditional interviews and gain a more accurate assessment of candidates and reduce bias.
