UVM Librarians Present Inclusive Hiring Practices Poster at ACRL 2023

Date: 
Monday, March 20, 2023

Congratulations to UVM Libraries' own Daisy Benson, Gary Attwood, Kate Bright, Amalia Dolan, Laura Haines, and Kelli Kauffroath who presented a poster on inclusive hiring practices last week at the Association for College and Research Libraries annual conference! Their presentation is titled, "Recruit Don’t Search: Using Inclusive Strength-Based Processes in Hiring." The abstract can be found below. 

Despite snowy weather and travel headaches, Daisy Benson, Kate Bright, and Amalia Dolan (above) were able to represent their group in Pittsburg, PA. Their poster attracted a great deal of attention and conversation around DEI and hiring practices. Another hearty congratulations to this team for sharing such an engaging, timely project, and on a very successful presentation!

 

“Recruit Don’t Search: Using Inclusive Strength-Based Processes in Hiring.”

"Abstract: During the 2020-2021 academic year, our organization undertook a strategic effort to improve our diversity, equity, and inclusion practices with the goal of creating a more diverse organization. Paramount in this effort was the development of a set of best practices to be used by our institution to ensure that our hiring practices promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. This poster will detail the processes we undertook to fundamentally rethink hiring and share best practices that we developed so that other institutions can apply these same principles. Learning Outcomes: Attendees will be able to describe how a strengths-based mindset and an interview process that centers the needs of candidates can result in a stronger and more diverse applicant pool. Attendees will be able to give examples of best practices that could be used for inclusive recruiting and support diversity and equity. After attending, attendees will be able to create elements of a strengths-based hiring process that could be implemented at their own institutions."
