How to Conduct a Diversity Search
- Create a role.
- Once you have added your search inputs and a slate has been created, you can use the Slate Filters (located above the slate) to refine your candidate slate. The Diversity filter is located at the far right of the filters.
- Click on Diversity, select your preferred input and click OK. The slate will refresh and show the candidates meeting your selection criteria.
User Tip! Don’t Accidentally Incorporate Unconscious Bias
Unconscious bias manifests itself in several ways, including the schools that people have attended and the companies they work for. To eliminate the risk of contaminating your slate with unconscious bias, we highly recommend adjusting your slate to weight skills and experiences, rather than particular schools.
To learn more, visit our blog at www.censia.com/blog where we cover this topic in extensive detail.
Common Sources of Unconscious Bias:
Unless you’re looking for early-career candidates, recent graduates or candidates with a very specific educational background (for instance, botanical medicine), it is best to avoid typing in school names. This ensures that the search will be focused on skills and experiences, and not educational titles and pedigrees.
Searching by language is a great asset when you’re hiring for an international role, but should not be used to exclude multilingual candidates.
How to Use Anonymous Mode to Improve Diversity
Anonymous Mode anonymizes the candidate slate to improve OFCCP compliance and deliver a more diverse slate of qualified candidates. This feature hides candidates' names, emails, profile links, gender, languages spoken, and other race identifiers.
To learn more about Anonymous Mode please read our product blog on the topic.
- Click on the green circle with three dots in the top right-hand side of the slate and select Edit Anonymous Mode.
- On the pop-up, select the options you wish to mask and click Apply.
- The result will be an anonymized slate that can be shared with colleagues, hiring managers, and other colleagues, helping your whole team to avoid unconscious bias in the recruiting process.
