Compliance is not the end — driving equal opportunity with data analytics
Evidence-based decision-making shouldn’t end in research labs; higher education institutions also need information to make strategic decisions across campus, including hiring.
This webinar series will explore ways to look at data differently to solve problems and make evidence-based decisions that ensure equal opportunity and other best practices. Attendees will join PeopleAdmin Chief Research Officer Nick Montgomery to explore higher education trends, review a case study to identify common challenges and learn how to spot the challenges unique to their colleges or universities.
At the end of this two-part webinar series, attendees will:
- Understand which data points are commonly measured for equal employment opportunity and diversity recruiting initiatives.
- Be able to think through how to understand data points on their own.
- Have a checklist of key questions to ask themselves so they can put together their own scientific approach to understanding and feeling empowered with data.
