5 Best Practices for Company Culture when Recruiting Diverse Populations

  1. Establish a Culture that will Practice Representational Equity, Not Tokenization- In order to do this your company must understand that there is a need for more than just visible and invisible diverse identities. You should work nonstop to create a culture that understands that you are recruiting employees who have diverse identities and you relate the job qualifications to competencies and not just quotas. Representational Equity is about having a voice that has decision making impact. Tokenization is you are there because of your identities and symbolic diversity efforts, not for your contribution to change.
