  • This interactive webinar will be a time effective way for companies to tackle the current issue around a lack of diversity, specifically within posts held at management level.
  • The session is targeted at those involved in recruitment as panel members and will encourage self-reflection around the impact that implicit bias can have on hiring decisions.
