INTRODUCTION

Thank you for your interest in learning about navigating diversity recruitment through a more inclusive and equitable lens. This toolkit was created as a result of many conversations across campus as well as with our colleagues across the country. We hope this toolkit can provide you with resources to answer the question: “How can our organization effectively recruit diverse talent?”

The below resources are inclusive of programs and processes that are currently available to you through the University of Denver community as well as global, national and local resources from a variety of authors, speakers, and organizations. It is our hope that you can utilize these tools to help engage your colleagues, leaders and organizations in conversations and actions that lead to diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces. While this is centered around recruitment best practices, the intent may take you far beyond that single process. We encourage you to share information about your organization’s DE&I strategies, ask us questions about our initiatives, or reach out if you have questions about these resources. We are by no means experts, but we are excited to learn alongside you in collaboration to support your recruitment strategies.

To further connect with our team on DE&I initiatives and partnerships, email our Employer Connection team at hire@du.edu
