ROUNDTABLE - RECRUITERS - Reducing Bias in Job Posting Language

Date: April 23, 2021
Location: Online

CPD hours: 1.5

Reducing Bias in Job Posting Language 
You’re strong and competitive, assertive in your actions. You’re a ninja in your field, self-reliant and a leader.”

What would happen instead, if your job posting appealed for someone who is “exceptional at what you do, motivated to succeed, and a go-getter”? Job postings with gender-neutral wording get 42% more responses.

In this session, we’ll discuss writing better job posts which generate better results, are more inclusive, and contain less gender-biased wording. 

Guest Facilitator:  N/A


Roundtable Host(s): Kim Adkin, CPHR Candidate and Lisa McAteer, CPHR
