Go beyond HR to find diverse talent

Alumnus Sheila Goldgrab (BA ’82 Innis, MEd ’97), executive leadership coach and regular Forbes contributor, discusses creative ways to find diverse talent in the workplace. 

"Too often, searching for diverse talent is relegated to the HR function. It’s considered other people’s job even though it requires many more people’s involvement to get right. The most useful understanding of diversity broadly includes employees who reflect a range of backgrounds, thoughts, experiences and skills. It takes a little creative problem solving to enable greater work opportunities and bring in multiple perspectives."
