The Diversity Hiring Conundrum: 3 Reasons You’re Not Meeting Your Tech Diversity Goals—and 4 Strategies for Moving Forward
Despite plenty of high-flying DEI pledges, businesses are still struggling to kick their chronic diversity gaps. For years, leaders and recruiters have blamed the lack of diverse talent on a supply problem—but that’s not the whole story. A hyper-focus on degrees and exclusive hiring practices leave little opportunity for non-traditional applicants to get their foot in the door.
Left unchecked, these narrow and outmoded approaches will continue to constrain talent pools and hamper DEI efforts. Leaders can’t sit back and wait for policymakers and learning institutions to solve their diversity woes. Rather, they must abandon the outdated mindsets and practices that are holding them and millions of individuals back from opportunities and growth.
At General Assembly, our years of experience partnering with global brands like Adobe, M&T, and Microsoft has given us a unique look into the most effective approaches for addressing critical talent needs—and bridging long-standing workplace equity gaps.
