Is DE&I Really Happening in Recruiting?

Your DE&I efforts might be terminally stalled and we can prove it.

Let’s rewind:

It is 2020 and companies will tell anyone who will listen that they prioritize diverse talent and they have renewed commitments to DE&I.

However by 2021 it was already reported that roughly 80% of companies were “going through the motions” when it comes to DE&I.

Fast forward to 2023 and big tech layoffs are everywhere. Women are disproportionately affected and underrepresented talent will face heavy competition for any open positions, especially entry level.

Many recruiters and TA teams are bracing for hundreds of new applicants and, unfortunately, resumes are the biggest source of unconscious bias when it comes to screening.

This is a recipe for disaster when it comes to DE&I progress.

Has your executive team (or maybe shareholders) put an emphasis on DE&I in the past few years?
