SGO DEI Webinar: Inclusive Recruiting & Talent Acquisition in the Workplace
March 31, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
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:
- Review the differences between recruiting and acquiring
- Debunk the myth about “not finding qualified diverse candidates”
- Understand why workplaces have a hard time recruiting people from socially marginalized backgrounds
- 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!
