    Topic: Devaluing Diversity – Avoiding Mistakes in the Interview Process

    Creating and embracing diversity not only is the right thing to do, it absolutely is essential for the success of your organization. The hiring process is a critical process for your organization to achieve these goals. However, doing so without creating a legal liability is crucial. This program will focus on what you can and cannot do during the hiring process to achieve the diversity your organization demands.
