Description

Inclusion + Recruitment: Lessons, Results, and Hope from the Trenches:


You know you'll build a better company long-term if you can just figure out how to recruit from a diverse pool of candidates. But with every new hire, you can't seem to break out of the usual. It's not rocket science, but it does take work-- even when you're a billion-dollar company. Our accomplished speakers will walk you through how they changed their organizations for the better, and how you can get started, too.

Attendees will learn:

· Standard recruitment processes are often disproportionately challenging for women, people of color, people with disabilities, people with autism, and veterans.

· We can do better – if we care enough to try and execute.

· Speakers will share a few changes you can make to your recruitment methods now.

Rachel Williams has 4 years of experience at Yelp, most recently assuming the role of Head of Corporate Recruiting, Diversity and Inclusion in 2014. She is currently focused on building Yelp’s inclusion initiatives to accelerate action. Having grown up in San Mateo, CA, Rachel often found that she was one of only a couple faces of color in her classrooms. This early awareness of her own differences inspired her thirst for increased diversity and inclusion at a young age.

With a B.A. in Psychology from UC Berkeley and more than 15 years of human resources experience in a variety of industries including technology, life sciences, consumer products and retail, Rachel has honed her expertise in recruitment, organizational development, and strategic change activities. She is thrilled to be able to narrow her focus on Diversity and Inclusion, a very important element of the employee experience and a passion for Rachel. She returns to Yelp after most recently serving as the Head of Talent Acquisition for ClearSlide. She has also held talent acquisition roles at SolarCity, Peet's Coffee & Tea as well as an executive search consultant for venture capitalists.
