Inclusive Talent Management – Seminar #2

Inclusive Talent Management, Part 2: Leading Practices for Recruiting and Hiring Opportunity Talent

Companies that successfully hire diverse candidates develop specific systems and structures to mitigate unconscious bias in their hiring process. Participants will learn how to better hire diverse candidates and avoid common pitfalls so that they can begin to plan practical improvements to their own practices and procedures.

About the Inclusive Talent Management Seminar Series

This three-part seminar series will explore how organizations can best recruit, retain, and advance Opportunity Talent, defined as individuals from traditionally untapped talent pools who are resilient, motivated, adaptable, and actively seeking economic stability through employment.

Opportunity Talent may include young adults without a college degree, persons with disabilities, veterans, formerly incarcerated individuals, and individuals with DACA status. Proactively targeting Opportunity Talent expands a company’s talent pipeline while bringing in valuable new perspectives and capabilities.

Each 90-minute session will introduce participants to research-based best practices, highlight case studies, and provide peer-to-peer learning. Most importantly, participants will explore how to implement high-impact practices within their own companies.

The seminar series will be led by Grads of Life, a national leader in helping organizations develop inclusive talent management strategies.


Participants are expected to attend all three 90-minute sessions:


This series is exclusively available to employees of Board of Trade member companies. There is no fee to participate. It will be limited to 30 participants, and virtual “seats” will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.  Email [email protected] to request to participate.
