Is hiring on the horizon for your team? Whether you have an immediate opening, or are planning for the future, it is important to stay up-to-date on best practices.

Diversifying search committees is one easy step teams can take towards ensuring a more equitable and inclusive hiring process. If your unit is expanding, consider diversifying your search committee by adding at least one committee member outside of your current DAR unit.

Inviting a colleague from another unit to join your committee can help:

  1. Reduce unconscious bias (we all have blind spots!)
  2. Increase a sense of accountability for engaging in intentional, equitable hiring processes
  3. Strengthen collaboration and relationships across DAR units

Interested in asking a DAR colleague to join your search committee, but not sure where to start? Consider asking a member of DAR’s DEI Work Group, or reach out to Talent Management directly for guidance.
