Johnson & Johnson Innovation Presents: Best Practices in Recruiting Diverse Talent Webinar Series (Session 1)

Incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) into the fabric of your organization is an ambitious, but very achievable goal. There is voluminous research proving that diverse teams are more innovative, productive, and resourceful, and achieve greater financial success than their not-so-diverse peers. For those reasons and others, organizations have more incentive than ever to recruit, secure, and retain diverse employees.

This workshop focuses on identifying the best practices for recruiting, onboarding, and retaining diverse talent in a competitive marketplace.

The panelists will discuss several important and related issues, including:

- Building a business case for recruiting diverse candidates

- Developing new pipelines for identifying and recruiting diverse candidates

- Creating race and gender-agnostic job descriptions and interview techniques

- Onboarding and supporting diverse candidates over the short and long term

The session will be an interactive and open conversation, allowing you the opportunity to offer your impressions and questions with the goal of gaining a more clear and more nuanced understanding of best practices for recruiting diverse talent.
