"The Code of Curiosity"

Tuesday, April 6th, 2021 at 10:15AM (CST)

Presentation Description:

“The Code of Curiosity: Unbiased Interview Strategies” begins a journey of awareness of our own biases. This session creates a safe environment for all of us to begin to explore all the influences that have formed our biases. It helps us develop a vulnerability to explore what triggers us, what causes us to express our biases in positive and negative ways. And it gives us hope through knowledge because we are all biased, we are not broken, and we are just human. Finding that common ground gives us all a starting point to work together to be more curious and to build a more inclusive workplace. We begin building that inclusion through the candidate experiences we create and the way we approach our interviewing, and this session will give attendees simple takeaways to make impactful changes to current interview processes.


Three Takeaways:​​

  1. How to be more aware of their own biases through a better, scientific understanding of why we're all biased

  2. Common mistakes and expert tips for interviewing

  3. How to build interview questions that drive curiosity and help you and your team "screen in" candidates instead of "screen out"
