Inclusive Hiring Best Practices: Removing Barriers and Mitigating Search Committee Bias

Train your faculty and staff search committee members on foundational best practices for inclusive hiring.

As campuses work more efficiently to recruit and retain highly qualified and diverse candidates, it is imperative that your faculty and staff search committees have an ongoing process in order to review and refine their current hiring practices with an eye toward mitigating bias and removing barriers to inclusivity. This 5-part video series was created to help members of your search committees with managing the following stages of the search process:

  1. Getting Started, and Establishing Your Search Committee
  2. Recruiting Diverse, Qualified Candidates
  3. Selecting Preliminary Candidates
  4. Extending and Conducting Formal Interviews
  5. Managing Final Assessments and Recommendations for Hire
  6. Onboarding New Hires

How should I use this resource?

This course has been specifically designed as a foundational training session to help bring search committee members up to speed on inclusive hiring practices. Each lesson is no more than 30 minutes in length, so we recommend assigning specific applicable segments of the course to your search committee members over a defined period of time. To encourage further conversation and application, we also recommend following up each segment with real-time discussion among your search committee members. Each person participating can record their notes in the five-page downloadable workbook that accompanies the course and then bring them to the group conversation to ensure a productive debrief.

The following lessons are included with this course.

  • Speaker & Topic Introduction
