  • Maintain a list of educational institutions with a qualified and diverse student body
  • Model the diversity of the organization to potential recruitment sources
  • Utilize a diverse recruiting team so that the organization is appealing to candidates
  • Perform recruiting outreach in potential recruiting communities

Instituting Diversity Recruitment

To build a diverse recruitment pool, we will also be looking at these initiatives:

  • Maintain a list of educational institutions with a qualified and diverse student body
  • Model the diversity of the organization to potential recruitment sources
  • Utilize a diverse recruiting team so that the organization is appealing to candidates
  • Perform recruiting outreach in potential recruiting communities

Preventing Discrimination

To prevent cases of discrimination, here are some of the steps we will be discussing.

  • Understand federal laws, and any additional laws enacted in your state.
  • Maintain open communications about fairness, diversity, and discrimination.

Policy Development

  • Anti-discrimination
  • Anti-harassment

Ways to Discourage Discrimination

Organization should implement both formal and informal systems to address discrimination. This should also include hiring policies that promote a more diverse pool of candidates.

  • Always work within the framework of federal and state laws.
  • Create an atmosphere where protected group members feel comfortable.

Module Eight: Dealing with Diversity Complaints as a Person

Discrimination complaints are allegations made by an employee which concerns cases of unfair treatment based on race, religion, and gender. In this module, we discuss the steps that you should take should this happen.

What to Do If You’re Involved in a Complaint

This include gathering personal information and initial details of the complaint

Understanding Your Role

Submitting the complaint to your supervisor and possible investigation.

Creating a Support System

  • Spend time with your family and friends
  • Try to enjoy your hobbies
  • Listen to your favorite music

Module Nine: Dealing with Diversity Complaints as a Manager

Workplace complaints are usually lodged by employees. However, these can also come from an EEOC, attorney, or the EEOC.

As a manager, you are often the first point of contact when an employee wishes to make a complaint. Because efficient and effective handling of a complaint is an important responsibility, it is critical to understand and follow a careful process.

Recording the Complaint

Upon receiving an employee complaint, schedule a meeting as possible. Take note of all details if this is channeled through a formal complaint. Ensure that the complaint is addressed in a fair, consistent, and objective manner.

Identify Appropriate Actions

For organizations without a designated diversity offer or member of the human resource department, report to your direct supervisor.

Choosing a Path

We will also discuss several action plans which include:

  • Participate fully in an investigation
  • Continue to monitor the situation in your workgroup
  • Report any new complaint information you receive to the diversity officer or human resources representative
  • Arrange for a short paid leave for the employee if warranted

Module Ten: Dealing Diversity Complaints as Organization

As an organization, you must take specific actions once a complaint is filed. In this part of the course, we discuss the actions an organization must make once it formally receives a complaint.

Receiving a Complaint

  • Treat the person with respect and compassion
  • Do not blame or retaliate against the complainer
  • Follow documented policies and established procedures.

Weighing the need for an Investigation

The actions can also be based on the severity of the complaint. For simple and straightforward complaint that can easily be resolved, an investigation might not be warranted.

Conduct an Investigation

Here, we will discuss the process of conducting an investigation which include:

  • Map out the investigation
  • Assemble documents and other evidence
  • Plan and conduct interviews
  • Review and evaluate the evidence
  • Choosing a Response

Take Action

  • Warnings to avoid the offending conduct in the future
  • Training or educational programs, individually, as a group, or company-wide
  • Verbal counseling or warnings
  • Suspension
  • A corrective action plan or probationary period

Document the Investigation

  • Follow Up
  • Learning from the Complaint
