Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Recruitment, Hiring and Retention

General Material
Published Date
October, 2018

The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to hiring managers seeking to an equity lens to their hiring and employee retention practices. Recent and historical studies have shown that sustainability and environmental fields lag in their ability to recruit, hire, and retain employees of color. This can be due to a variety of systemic factors including access to social and professional networks and exclusion from the practices of environmental campaigns and organizations, as well as implicit and explicit racial bias in hiring processes.

The practices and tools provided in this document are intended to support organizations in their evolving practices to achieve increased equity, diversity, and inclusion in their offices by addressing historical discrepancies in recruitment, hiring and retention efforts.
