Leaving Your Recruitment Comfort Zone

This session is sponsored by Leaving Your Recruitment Comfort Zone

You’ve gone to the panels, heard the speeches and come away ready to find diverse talent for your newsroom. But, once you leave, you don’t know where to start. Let’s start here: with a lightning talk, “Diversity as a Verb, not a Noun,” followed by a rotating series of tabletop conversations on how to find and hire your next employees. The facilitated discussions will dive into:

  • Join The Clubs: Leaving Your Recruitment Comfort Zone
  • Sitting Still, Reaching Far: Social Media Tools
  • Sponsorship vs. Mentorship: They are not the same
  • Tracking: Keeping Up With The Recruits
  • Winning: Raising Your Organization’s Profile
  • Please note: This workshop has limited capacity and an RSVP is required. Also, the workshop is designed for hiring managers only, so please only RSVP if you are in a position to hire. RSVP details coming soon.
