National Member Webinar: Inclusive Talent Acquisition

September 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 from 12 pm to 1 pm EDT – this event is exclusive for employees of our National & Regional Partners

Employers often cite elusive “pipeline problems” as an excuse for their lack of diversity. But it’s often issues with talent acquisition processes, not a lack of LGBTQ2+ talent, that keep queer and trans job seekers out of the workforce. When it comes to inclusive selections and onboarding processes, little changes can often make a big difference. In this webinar, Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist Amanda Spakowski will show the many ways employers can be inclusive of LGBTQ2+ talent throughout the selections and onboarding process and will demonstrate all of the little things that, put together, create a culture of belonging.

Learning Goals:

  • Policies to make recruitment LGBTQ2+ inclusive
  • Making inclusive job descriptions and screening questions
  • How it is the little things showcase inclusion


  • Human Resource Professionals
  • Talent Acquisition, Recruitment departments
  • LGBTQ2+ Employee Resource Group members
