Diversity conversations are going on in the workplace, but the question is: Are they honest? From racially-charged news headlines to employees going on bias tirades, there is no evading the conversation of diversity and inclusion in the workplace- yet we all do our best to evade it. In fact, a 2014 Deloitte report on Global Human Capital Trends cites ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ as a trend that companies are least concerned about. Contrary to this report, diversity is an important topic in business.

College Recruiter is hosting a series of three webinars this month to dive into these issues in an entertaining yet informative manner. Our guests are Steve Levy and Janine Truitt.

Steve is the director of sourcing for Indeed, owner of Recruiting Inferno Consulting, and a talent acquisition leader, workforce planner, hands-on recruiter, talent community builder & pipeline sourcing and populating magician in ANY technology-laden sector. He is an “Old School”/”New Cool” practitioner who recruits to retain; who mentors recruiters & hiring managers to think & perform better; and trains employees at all levels to become talent scouts. Steve is one of the top 100 most social HR folks & influential recruiters on Twitter and ERE’s first blogger & group leader. Steve can be followed on Twitter @LevyRecruits.

Janine is the Owner/Chief Innovations Officer for Talent Think Innovations, LLC, a talent management consulting firm.

Today was the second of the three-part webinar series. Steve and Janine discussed in detail the problems that existing in the hiring process due to discrimination, some of which is accidental but some of which is still purposeful.
