Lived Experience & Diversifying Recruitment – Webinar & Interactive Workshop
Friday 28th June
Time: 11:00 – 12:30

We are seeing more and more organisations use the phrase must have ‘lived experience’, whether that’s in recruitment, or in getting external experts to talk about certain issues. Whilst there are pros and cons to using this as a selection criteria, we look into some of its challenges and pitfalls. In addition, what does it mean to diversify, whether in board and trustee recruitment or general recruitment?

We are seeing more and more organisations use the phrase must have ‘lived experience’, whether that’s in recruitment, or in getting external experts to talk about certain issues. Whilst there are pros and cons to using this as a selection criteria, we look into some of its challenges and pitfalls, such as how do you quantify lived experience and whose lived experience is the narrative which is preferred?

In addition, what does it mean to diversify, whether in board and trustee recruitment or general recruitment. How can you use positive action to hire from minority groups, rather than falling into the trap of using positive discrimination. What are their differences? Are we looking at the full picture and also addressing the pipeline or are potential candidates being set up to fail?

In this webinar session, we will take a deeper look into diversifying, to avoid tokenistic symbolic gestures and help you to get it right in your recruitment strategies.
