I’m proud of the course I’m releasing today about how to remove bias in job postings. This is only the second time I’ve created educational content like this, but it’s even more special than the first time.
Why? Well, this course is going beyond the basics. It’s a plan to ensure that we create content that allows anyone to imagine a better life. A story they can live. Everyone. All.
Over the last two years, a lot of companies have said they want a more diverse pipeline. We want more (fill in blank) people at (fill in blank) level. I’ve seen all of the goals and initiatives.
What I don’t see all the time is the work. I don’t see people talking about what worked in their execution of that plan (and what didn’t) publicly. There’s too much fear and shame around DEI work.
The Formula: What’s In This Course About How To Remove Bias In Job Postings?
That prompted a lot of introspection on my own part. I wondered if bias in job postings was a lot more than linguistics like all of the augmented writing tools would tell you. I’m a copywriter. Clearly, I believe in the power of words. However, I don’t think words are the all powerful, end all be all here. There’s more to this.
There’s bias in our tactics. We’re sending signals whether we know it or not. That’s why I created this course.
After diving into a 100-year research study on bias in job postings and testing these concepts with clients around the world, I’ve distilled everything I learned into this course. It’s seven episodes to teach you how to remove bias in job postings and intake questions to get better intel, alongside templates and tactics you can use the second you sign off to overhaul your job postings so they attract people from all backgrounds and identities.
Plus, I’ve kept it all concise so you can knock this out in an afternoon, then come back anytime you need a quick real-time tutorial.
This course is not just for talent teams. It’s for hiring managers and anyone else who touches the hiring process. When we know why tactics aren’t working, we do better. My course can help.
