The Equity Case for Competency-Based Hiring

Hear about the results of a pilot program that radically changed the approach to hiring staff at Minneapolis College and resulted in the college becoming a leader in the Minnesota State system for diversifying its workforce. Learn about how the college is expanding the competency-based approach to faculty hiring in the next phase of the pilot and examine how competency-based hiring breaks down structural barriers and disrupts the transfer of equity gaps in education to the workforce.

Dianna Cusick, Vice President of Human Resources and Workforce Equity, and Jay Williams, College Diversity Officer, both of Minneapolis College
