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!
