Equitable & Inclusive Recruitment Practices
Tuesday, July 21, 2020, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM PDT
Category: Nonmember Events

As we continue to envision a post-COVID environmental education field, we need to ensure racial equity is at the center. Join the Youth Outside team for this two part series (1.5 hour each) recruitment and hiring training that will help those hiring for new staff in the fall center the realities of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. 

During the recruitment training participants will…

  • Identify the implicit biases that can present themselves in educator recruitment materials
  • Explore the role deficit-based language plays in turning away potential applicants
  • Gain a greater understanding of what racial equity-centered outreach looks like, sounds like, and means for those most impacted by systemic racism 

These workshops are ideal for anybody who is involved in the recruitment and hiring of talented people of color in environmental education. It is not required that participants attend both sessions, although it is recommended. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring recent recruitment and hiring documents to review.
