Coordinating your recruiting efforts to include associations and other groups that target diversity-specific communities will help you create a diverse applicant pool. These associations and other recruiting and networking resources can help.
Associations within Academic Institutions
This sourcing venue provides an opportunity to meet with and discuss career opportunities with students in schools. Hiring managers may also consider attending association meetings and/or scheduling on-campus speaking engagements as supplemental ways to publicize the department’s vacancies. The U-M Alumni Association and Career Center may also be valuable sources to locate potential candidates.
An annual department review should be done of all recruiting events recently attended. Observe your past and present goals. Is goal attainment reflected in the diversity of your staff? Importance should be placed on representation at recruiting events to welcome and engage diverse applicants, allowing them to be themselves in the recruitment process. Consistency in capturing event information and the implementation of proper follow-up is critical. Consistency and follow-up show that the U-M is a welcoming environment for a diverse community, with opportunities to advance along various career paths.
