Keywords:hiring practices, job-life cycle, diversity, equity, inclusion
The push to incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion into higher education spaces has changed hiring practices for universities. The team of HR professionals at a large flagship university in the United States developed a plan to help hiring managers increase diversity and equity during the job life cycle. An evaluation of the intervention includes interviews with both hiring managers and those hired in the last year. Findings include concerns about shrinking applicant pools, a lack of equity in job expectations and salaries, and the need for additional professional development opportunities.
