Cornell Interactive Theatre Ensemble Presents: It Depends On the Lens: Addressing Unconscious Bias in the Talent Acquisition Process

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Cornell Interactive Theater Ensemble (CITE) and the Cornell University Recruitment and Employment Center have collaborated together to develop an interactive video depiction and workshop to address unconscious bias in the hiring process.

Who should attend?

This workshop is designed for hiring managers, recruiters, and HR leadership.

What to expect

Audience members are provided an overview of the workshop and given specific instructions before they view a 15-minute video scene titled; “It Depends on The Lens.” The scene depicts an interview team in action as they provide candid feedback and opinions when discussing which applicants to advance onto the next phase of the recruiting process.

Following the video, two of the actors are introduced in character to the audience by the facilitator, who provides audience members a unique opportunity to ask questions in a guided discussion on the scenario and characters portrayed in the video.

This discussion is followed by a short research talk on unconscious bias, describing the studies used to develop the interactions depicted in the scenario.

The session concludes with a discussion of best practices for combating unconscious bias in the recruiting.
