Digital Week 6 - “Recruiting in the digital age - How to attract a wider talent pool" with Patricia Widmer and Nadia Fischer
In this Webinar we show you why the language that is normally used in job ads actually deters women and people with diverse backgrounds from applying. In addition we talk about how algorithms can increase unconscious biases and stereotypes which leads to the fact that the candidates might not be recognized and therefore not selected. You will learn to recognize such pitfalls and we will provide you with tools which you can use in your daily business life to circumvent such traps.

The online session will include a 20-25 minute presentation and a subsequent live Q&A. All webinars are free but registration is required. Everybody who registers will receive a link to the recording of the webinar.
