Recruiters using LinkedIn Recruiter will now be able to see when the gender representation of a talent pool is unbalanced, and they’ll be given tips to improve it.
Last week, the company announced the launch of “Diversity Nudges,” which will help recruiters increase the diversity of their candidate search. LinkedIn provides this example: “if you’re hiring for an electrical engineer, Diversity Nudges might suggest adding skills such as data analysis, analytical skills, and Simulink to increase the number of women electrical engineers in your candidate search.”
LinkedIn has also added dedicated section to company pages where organizations can highlight their company culture and commitments, such as DEI, environmental sustainability, and social impact. Finally, the company is making six new DEI learning paths free to access until September 8.
