CHICAGO – November 3, 2021 – Pamela A. McElvane, CEO of Diversity MBA announced today the release of a new book entitled The SkiNy on Diversity Recruiting – The Best Practice Guide to Current Trends on Recruitment Strategies. This book reveals 15 years of data and research that unveils embedded systemic flaws in workplace recruitment practices that often negatively impacts hiring of people of color. This book is the first in an eight-part series on diversity, equity, and inclusion practices. Each book has a companion workbook for further explanation and study.
The SkiNy on Diversity Recruiting is a must-read step-by-step guide for businesses of any size to develop and hone their recruiting strategies from start to finish. This book is loaded with best practices and real-time insights that highlight what to watch for, and future outcomes for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
McElvane targets two key audiences, but not in the order you may think. The primary target audience is employers, regardless of size. The book takes a piercing look at the true landscape of recruiting practices that reveal barriers, successes, and opportunities. Recruiting and hiring professionals are encouraged to take a hard look at themselves and their talent acquisition process and ask the tough questions on what needs to change to make real impact in achieving diverse recruiting goals. This book takes a deep dive into the experiences of experts and the practices from some of the most known brands in the world.
The second audience for this book is job seekers. It is important for them to understand how companies approach diversity recruiting and what they need to know to be in a position of advantage.
“I was first inspired by the desire to share information and data I was collecting and learning to educate others. I want to inform others about diversity recruiting and embedded systemic biases,” McElvane said. “Secondly, my colleagues and customers encouraged me to write about what I know to be true about diversity recruiting, so I created a tool to help them identify best practices, barriers, and validation, and help create solutions for the future.”
“I want this book to serve as a one stop guide that takes you through the journey of uncovering why diversity recruiting has been a mystery for decades and demystify the obvious intention of why companies are not leveraging diversity to be on the top of their game. If employers want to make a real difference they must digest the truth and make the change,” McElvane said.
The SkiNy on Diversity Recruiting is available on Amazon for the price of $16.97 in paperback. It is also available via kindle and e-book. For more information go to pamelaamcelvane.com.
