Although there has been amazing progress in the percentage of women in the workforce, there is still more work to be done. Posting a “gender-neutral” job ad is a step in the right direction, but there remains a large disparity in the types of jobs that women get, as well as the pay that they receive. According to the US Department of Labor, women earn on average about 80% of what men do. This shows that there are still certain levels of inequality when it comes to the type of economic security women receive. This begs the questions: what more can be done to decrease gender inequality?
To recruit more women, you need to start with a sophisticated women-centric sourcing strategy, polish your employment brand, and deploy AI-based technologies to help overcome biased hiring hurdles. In this session, Jeanette Leeds, Talent Acquisition Expert, Business Leader, and Tech Entrepreneur will teach you how:
- To reduce systemic bias in the recruitment pipeline
- Gender diversity sourcing can improve your talent pool
- To create a sophisticated women-centric sourcing strategy
