“We would love to hire more diversity, but candidates from underrepresented groups just don’t apply for our jobs.”
Building a diverse workforce can seem like an insurmountable challenge when your pipeline for employment openings lacks a broad range of candidates. In this BA Collab Hour webinar, Dr. J will cover a variety of practical pipeline development strategies that will help craft beer businesses successfully increase the breadth, depth, and diversity of their pools of qualified job applicants and leverage the benefits of doing so.
