Our Keynote Topic:
"A New Look at Introversion: The Largest Neurodiversity Category in Sourcing, Recruiting, Diversity & Inclusion"
While a good portion of the world's population is made up of introverts of all genders, races, ethnicities, sexual preferences and ages, much of the Western world seems to favor and idolize extroversion. This can lead to environments in which introverts feel as if they don't belong, and where introverts earn and get promoted less than their extroverted counterparts.
Introversion isn't a choice - it is genetic, and research has shown there are brain-level differences between introverts and extroverts that result in real differences in how they think, process information, interact with others, and work best.
In this talk, Glen will highlight the advantages that introverts bring to the table when it comes to sourcing and recruiting, as well as make the case including introversion in diversity, neurodiversity, and inclusion efforts, offering practical suggestions for creating environments in which introverts can bring their authentic selves to work.
