Transforming recruitment: creating diverse and inclusive teams

This session will focus on how organisations can transform the way they recruit by changing the language of their job advertisements and recruitment processes.

It draws on the findings of a major 2-year research project based at the University of Nottingham, funded by the Government’s UKRI (UK Research and Innovation), where recruitment texts from 90 different global organisations have been analysed and re-written using innovative tools and techniques from linguistics.

The session will give attendees a set of practical recommendations, based on robust research evidence, for recruiting more diverse and inclusive teams.

With speaker: Professor Louise Mullany, Professor of Sociolinguistics and Director of Linguistic Profiling for Professionals, University of Nottingham, UK.
