You will witness first hand your own biases in identifying top talent in resumes and gain the skills to systematically reduce these biases across your company. You will learn how to expand the diversity recruitment funnel from junior to staff-level talent, and will put this skill into practice at the retreat. Furthermore, you will better align with engineering orgs to increase quality of hire while reducing time to hire.
