Seminar Event: Recruiting and selecting for diversity: Can technology help?
The Society for Industrial and Organisational Psychology Australia is proud to present our upcoming CPD event :
Recruiting and selecting for diversity: Can technology help?
When hiring, many organisations seek to select a group of diverse applicants who will perform well on the job. However, these two hiring outcomes can sometimes be challenging to obtain simultaneously. In this talk, Dr Serena Wee will share some of the latest research around recruiting and selecting for diversity, and discuss the role that technology can play in helping organisations to achieve their diversity initiatives. Dr Wee will also discuss how these strategies can impact the candidate experience.
This session will also include a Q&A opportunity and will be live streamed online.
This session will be attended by SIOPA’s new President, Abby Haslehurst and Vice President Andrea Titus; please feel free to come down and have a chat with our new leaders!
