SGO DEI Webinar: Inclusive Recruiting & Talent Acquisition in the Workplace

March 31, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Recruiters and talent acquisition leaders play an important role in attracting employees to companies. Beyond recruiting employees, it is helpful to have a long-term strategy in place to create a more efficient, productive, and intentional hiring process.

In this webinar we will: 

  1. Review the differences between recruiting and acquiring
  2. Debunk the myth about “not finding qualified diverse candidates”
  3. Understand why workplaces have a hard time recruiting people from socially marginalized backgrounds
  4. Provide insight on how to strategically attract talented candidates

Join us as we discuss talent acquisition with our special guest, Alex Mimms, Manager of Technical Talent Acquisition at Toast.

Alex Mimms is the Manager of Technical Talent Acquisition at Toast, where she leads a team of 5 recruiters, and continues to help grow the R&D team. When Alex joined in 2016, the company was less than 200 people, and she was the sole technical recruiter. Over the last 3 1/2 years, she has helped the Product, Engineering and UX teams grow by more than 10x, with a special focus on inclusive recruiting.
When Alex isn’t seeking out the next addition to the Toast team, she’s hanging out with her dog, Petey, working on getting her private pilot’s license, or traveling to the next country on her lengthy “must see” list.

Please note that this topic is one portion of our longer workshops that cover many aspects to hiring inclusively.

Who should attend?

Recruiters, talent acquisition specialists, hiring managers, and individual contributors.

All genders are welcome!

Land Acknowledgement

She+ Geeks Out was originally founded on land that is the traditional territory of the Massachusett and Pawtucket tribes, and which is still home to descendants of these peoples. At this point in time, the SGO team is fully remote, and we are located across the United States. Land acknowledgements are a way for us to reflect upon the duality of our work— while we work within our team, our community, and our client organizations to promote greater inclusivity and abolish inequities, we ourselves still perpetuate and contribute to various forms of historical and present oppression. We are now operating in a virtual space, but we can still honor and name the physical spaces we all inhabit. We encourage you to learn more about the lands you are currently on and reflect on your own place in this work.
