Month: July 2020

Stacey A. Gordon Talks With Guest Niani Tolbert

Recently I had the opportunity to chat with Niani Tolbert, founder of the Hire Black initiative. What started as a Juneteenth commitment to provide resume review sessions for 19 black women has quickly evolved into large-scale allyship development among hundreds of recruiters and thousands of applicants. 

At this point in our history, companies are earnestly taking a hard look at their processes to identify where systematic exclusion is present. In this video, Niani provides practical ideas that recruiters and interviewers can implement TODAY to amplify diversity and inclusion in their hiring processes.

Niani also makes an exciting, first-time announcement in regards to the future of the Hire Black initiative!

Simply Good: Beauty from Ashes

After four months of shelter-in-place (and even longer for some countries around the world), it may seem impossible to see the light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel. But what if we paused for a moment to look for the rays of light that are breaking through the darkness each and every day?

The mission of this month’s newsletter is to help us do just that. Against all odds, beautiful things are coming out of the ashes of this unprecedented time in world history. Though unable to meet in person, people are still uniting in spirit and purpose to care for one another in creative ways. Some businesses are focusing on their people more than their bottom line. Goodness and hope are all around us, even in the darkest of times—we just need the courage to look.

Consider these articles a jump start on your pursuit. We would love to hear about anything else you find!
