Diversity Interview Training
volume 2 number 6
A prospective client recently considered our diversity interview training Interviewing Today's Workforce® for her managers. After reviewing our material, the training manager asked if we could condense the ninety minutes of "diversity content" in our interview program into a fifteen-minute module for use in their current interviewing seminar.
Since we couldn't – and wouldn't – do that, they decided to create their own fifteen-minute diversity interview training and include it in their day-long program. Now, with one quick shot, they can claim they've "covered diversity" in their training.
Some other interviewing skills programs, unchanged since the 1980's, now provide a few admonitions to "avoid bias" and revised artwork to include minority representation.
Ever wonder why companies with a "check-off" mentality don't see much change in behavior around the diversity issues?
