Ambitious, empathetic, tech-savvy… these words are common in job descriptions, but did you know they’re also not inclusive? The words we use in job descriptions can subtly attract or subtly exclude particular demographics. In this 30-minute workshop led by Certified Diversity Executive, Jackie Ferguson, learn how to avoid coded language that insinuates your organization’s preference for a certain age, race, ability, gender, or sexual orientation. This webinar will teach you how to write inclusive job descriptions so you can attract the best candidates for the job. We’ll review the basics of inclusive language before diving into real-life examples of good and bad job descriptions.
