Most Uncomfortable HR Conversation You Will Have This Year

by | Feb 5, 2021

This week’s featured guests are Julie Sowash, Executive Director, Disability Solutions II Co-Host, Crazy and The King Podcast and Torin Ellis, Principal, Torin Ellis Brand Co-Host, Crazy and The King Podcast.  Are you ready?  Are you ready to go there?  They are.  And, they are bringing the most uncomfortable HR conversation you will have this year to the JobSync Recruitment Marketing Roundtable.

It’s going to go something like this– do you know who your most efficient hire is?  It’s a white guy.  And, why is it a white guy? Because of implicit bias.

What are you doing about implicit bias?  If you are doing nothing then you are complicit. Yes. Complicit.

It’s time to wrestle with this– its time to ask yourself where you stand and then it’s time to do something about it.  Come and learn what needs to be done from Torin and Julie.

As always- no sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation.

Executive Director, Disability Solutions II Co-Host, Crazy and The King Podcast

As Executive Director for Disability Solutions, Julie works with federal contractors to assess outreach, hiring, and retention systems and policies in a company that impact the organization’s ability to successfully engage/retain qualified jobseekers w/ disabilities.

The Disability Solutions team, including Julie, work with corporate leaders to build and implement, national to local hiring initiatives. Julie’s current focus is working with the leadership of Pepsi Beverages Company in the implementation of Pepsi ACT (Achieving Change Together), a national engagement to increase recruitment, hiring, and retention in the company’s workforce.

Julie’s experience in both the public, private, and compliance vendor environments gives her a unique perspective on the jobseeker to employee lifecycle. She uses this experience to focus on mapping barriers, and gaps in the talent engagement process, including within the ATS and RPO vendor infrastructure. This analysis allows for strategic and tactical development of affirmative hiring initiatives that engage jobseekers w/disabilities.
