Educause Introduces Inclusive Hiring Kit

A new resource from Educause provides a guide to diversity, equity and inclusion in higher education IT hiring. The Educause Inclusive Hiring Kit pulls together research, best practices, videos and other resources to help IT leaders better recruit and retain staff from diverse backgrounds.

The kit offers five microlearning units that can be reviewed individually or as a step-by-step journey:

"Long-term and lasting progress toward diversity, equity, and inclusion will require time, sustained effort, and the cumulative impact of incremental and individual actions," Educause wrote in the kit's introduction. "We encourage members of the higher education IT community to review their hiring processes along with this guide to identify opportunities for creating more inclusive practices, resources, and environments associated with hiring and retention."

The Inclusive Hiring Kit is freely available on the Educause site.
