Hiring After #MeToo: Are You Really an EEO Employer?

April 18 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

A Hiring Workshop Presented by the US EEOC
In October 2017, the #MeToo movement became one of the top trending hashtags on social media. Thousands of women and men around the world used the #MeToo to help demonstrate the widespread magnitude of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission expects to see an increase in complaints about private- and even public-sector workers and, so much so that a budget increase was recently approved in preparation to investigate these allegations.

The same attitudes which lead to sexual harassment can also impact hiring practices. In light of #MeToo, what does it mean to be an EEO employer?  We see the words listed on job postings, “XYZ Company is an EEO employer,” but are we really doing enough to stay in compliance with the law, protect our organizations and our staff, and offer equal opportunity to all?  In this workshop, participants will form hiring committees and work through a hiring scenario.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how social media campaigns such as #metoo are changing the awareness of harassment in the workplace.
  • Examine how the EEOC looks at job postings and advertisements.
  • Discuss how our hiring decisions are not just determined by applicants’ qualifications but also by the experiences and values we bring to table.
  • Construct hiring criteria and distinguish what sort of interview questions you should avoid.
  • Breakdown how to establish good hiring processes to help your organization hire the best candidates and become the EEO employer you want to be.
