University Human Resources, the Division of Diversity and Inclusion, the Office for University Accessibility, Equity and Civil Rights Compliance, and a number of other University stakeholders have partnered to establish new guidelines for recruitment and selection of faculty and staff at OHIO.
The updated guidelines are designed to promote active recruitment and outreach, combat bias during the search processes, and ultimately lead to more effective searches and a more diverse workforce. These guidelines build on the successes of the popular OHIO Search Committee Training series and the Diversity Advocate workshop and program.
University Human Resources is working closely with planning units to discuss the rollout of the new guidelines and have updated a number of websites including the Search Committee Training and Tools page and Hiring Process page to reflect the new changes.
University Human Resources will be offering lunch and learns on Jan. 20 and Feb. 16 for any employee interested in learning more about the recruitment guidelines. Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Interested employees may register online.
