The tools for true inclusivity: Inclusive recruitment toolkit: what it means in practice


Tuesday 12th June; 9.15am – 1.00pm

Disability Café

Hosted by Hogan Lovells; Central London

The term ‘inclusive recruitment’ is often used yet rarely elaborated upon or explained. Do we really understand what inclusive recruitment means, and what we actually need to do to ensure we are fully inclusive? Our Student Recruitment Toolkit brings inclusive recruitment to light and helps employers understand what being a disability confident student recruiter means in practice.

Starting with your strategy and moving through areas including attraction, screening and onboarding, the toolkit provides a step-by-step guide to achieving disability confidence. For each of the eight key focus areas are practical steps guiding employers through what they need to do, and enabling them to measure their own progress.

Using the toolkit enables you to identify where you currently are in terms of being disability confident and where you need to be. You will then be able to take the actions required to close the gap.

During this Café Helen Cooke, Director of MyPlus Consulting, will take you through the different parts of the toolkit and provide you with the insights to consider where you currently benchmark. There will also be the opportunity to hear from other employers who will share best practice and what has made a positive difference to their recruitment process.

Whether you have already embarked on your journey, or just setting out, you will then have the opportunity to consider what steps you will need to take in order to move towards becoming fully disability confident. By the end of the Café, you will have the start of a plan highlighting the actions you need to take to progress in this area.

The Student Recruitment Toolkit is exclusive to members of the MyPlus Recruiters’ Club. This Disability Café builds on last year’s Café and is therefore suitable for those who attended. Equally it is also relevant for members who are new to the Toolkit. Under normal circumstances Disability Cafés are open to non-members purchasing places however due to the nature of the topic this one is unavailable to non-members. It is also unavailable to Silver members who don’t have access to the Toolkit as part of their membership package.
