Refactor your hiring process: a framework (w/ Ilse Ackerman, Ezinne Chimah & Rocío Garza Tisdell)

In this workshop, we're happy to share our work in progress, offer a lens with which to reflect on your own goals and process, and provide you with some simple modifications that you can put right into action.
