Let's talk about D&I Best Practices with Cynthia Davis and Andrew Brown
Show Notes

In this episode host Naomi speaks with BAME Recruitment’s CEO and founder Cynthia and Head of Talent Acquisition Andrew. We pick their brains on the tricks and tips, secrets and experiences that they have gained from their decades of experience in the recruitment industry. They speak about the influx of companies stepping up their commitments to D&I since the Black Lives Matter movement and sifting out the genuine efforts opposed to the tokenistic approaches. Cynthia and Andrew share specific instances of ‘smelling’ tokenism and organisations merely ‘ticking a box’. Gain insights into the traps of unconscious biases, the exclusive nature of some job descriptions, and much more best practice advice. Like Naomi, you may be tempted to say “preach!”.
