How to Combat Diversity with Early Careers Talent

3rd December 2020


Diversity and inclusion has been a key focus for many UK businesses, not least after the movements throughout 2020. However employers are still facing challenges around which initiatives to implement and how to effectively make hiring processes more inclusive.

A 2019 Milkround study found 4 in 5 graduates believe that employers favour those who attend Russell Group universities and following the results, they have now delved deeper to understand how employers define top graduate talent and the actions that are being taken to make recruitment processes more inclusive for all.

Join this interactive virtual event where we will share the results of the recent survey, including the disparity of thoughts between graduates and employers where we will then share positive actions on how your business can attract diverse graduate talent.

What’s being discussed
  • Exclusive insights from graduates and employers
  • Understanding how employers define “top grad talent”
  • How to make recruitment processes more inclusive
  • How students and graduates want to be defined by employers
  • Real life employer case studies sharing lessons learned and tips for success
  • …and much more!
