Preconference Workshop: Recruitment and Retention Strategies of Diverse Employees

April 11, 2018
Georgetown Conference Center
Washington, D.C., United States
12 - 5 :15 p.m. Eastern

Workplace diversity has become increasingly paramount. That rising importance, in turn, has placed extra pressure on hiring diverse professionals. In a market with a shallow pool, finding diverse candidates is hard to achieve.

This program will help hiring managers understand the current challenges in recruiting and retaining diverse candidates from an advancement perspective. Some professions debate that an effective talent management program will naturally incorporate diversity. Unfortunately, these two efforts often are not integrated. This workshop will help advancement leaders and hiring managers connect these efforts to increase diverse candidates, grow staff retention and cultivate a more diverse and collaborative environment.

This preconference workshop is held in conjunction with the Conference on Diverse Philanthropy and Leadership.
