Centering Racial Equity in Recruitment and Hiring – Trainings Coming Soon!

As we continue to envision a post-COVID environmental education field, we must remain steadfast in centering racial equity in our work. To this end, we hope you can join the Youth Outside team for an upcoming online two-part training series focused on racial equity in recruitment and hiring. These trainings will help hiring managers center the realities of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color as they gear up for the fall season.

July 21, 2020, 10:00-11:30am: Equitable & Inclusive Recruitment Practices

During this training participants will:

  • Identify the implicit biases that can present themselves in educator recruitment materials
  • Explore the role deficit-based language plays in turning away potential applicants
  • Gain a greater understanding of what racial equity-centered outreach looks like, sounds like, and means for those most impacted by systemic racism 

August 4, 2020, 10:00-11:30am: Equitable & Inclusive Hiring Practices

During this training participants will:

  • Consider critical questions to ask of your organization when hiring talented staff of color 
  • Explore how white supremacy organizational culture is embedded in common hiring practices
  • Identify and mitigate the impacts of white supremacy organizational culture when hiring talented staff of color 

For more information and to register for one or both of these sessions, please visit our Eventbrite page.

Participants are recommended, though not required, to attend both trainings. We hope you can join us as we forge ahead in creating a more just and equitable environmental education field!
