Of the many barriers that stand in the way of museums hiring a diverse and inclusive staff, one of the largest and most intractable is the unintended bias staff bring to the tasks of creating and disseminating job ads, filtering resumes and selecting applicants. In this session, leaders at the forefront of equitable hiring will share the latest research, strategies and tools being applied across a broad range of professions to promote diversity and inclusion. After a panel discussion, you will engage in a hands-on workshop designed to help you craft job listings and develop interview strategies that will result in a more diverse talent pool.
