Workshop 1: Strategies to Maximize Diversity and Validity Outcomes of Talent Assessment Programs
Achieving validity and diversity outcomes of employee selection programs has been described as a dilemma. In this workshop, we will provide strategies for balancing these goals to maximize benefits, including goal-setting for DEIA in assessment procedures, identifying barriers that may limit the throughput of candidates in different groups, and methodological tools for optimizing multiple criteria.
- Describe an overarching approach to strategies that can be used to improve diversity outcomes of selection programs.
- Explore at least two methods for uncovering root causes, defining triggers or indicators, and pinpointing areas of concern, and describe the practical steps to investigate or recommend action to help to reduce or remove barriers.
- Describe internal and external data sources and mixed-method designs of research projects that focus on the aspects of recruitment, selection, and hiring that may limit employment opportunity or present barriers to equality of opportunity for all.
- Demonstrate how to use the Pareto-optimization modelling to balance diversity and validity as applicable in one data set.
- Explain at least three ways that assessment use in selection can be optimized to support DEIA.
