Congrats, you get to hire someone, or even better, a whole bunch of someones! Finding the right person for the job isn’t as simple as posting a job to Indeed and waiting for the candidates to show up. You know that unconscious bias is an issue. You know that you need someone yesterday in the role. So, what does it look like to run a hiring process that centers equity, manages biases, and gives everyone a fair shot, so you can bring the right person or people onto your teams? I’ve been hiring people for years in the progressive movement, and I have a set of principles and practices that I have found work exceptionally well which I’d like to share so we all can hire better.
