  • Using  social  media  to  support your  diversity  objec6ves Speaker:  Gry  Tina  Tinde,  independent diversity  advisor
  • BIRDS  OF  A  FEATHER  FLOCK TOGETHERIt  is  human  nature  to  choose  people  who  resemble  ourselves  as  co-­‐ workers.  Unconscious  bias  against  anything  that  seems  unfamiliar kicks  in  during  recruitment  and  promo>on  processes.
  • DISABILITY  ISSUES  TO  THE  FORE Zachary  Kimotho  from  Kenya  will  travel  4,000  K  to  South  Africa  in  2012  to  raise  funds  for  the  first  spinal  injury  center  in  Kenya.  At  the  same  >me  he  raises  awareness  about  the  strength,  resilience  and  talents  of  persons  with  disabili>es.
  • PARTNERS  ARE  ONLINE,  WHY  NOT JOIN  THEM?
  • ENGAGE  WITH  INTERNATIONAL GROUPS
  • ORIGIN  –  HR  DIVERSITY  NETWORK See  how  14  interna>onal  en>>es  work  on  diversity  &  inclusion  by  clicking  on  ORIGIN’s  15th  anniversary  publica>on
  • BE  WHERE  THE  CANDIDATES  ARE
  • MAKE  IT  EASY  TO  SHARE  VACANCIES
  • USE  FACEBOOK  ACTIVELY
  • REACHING  TOP  LEVELS • Interna>onal  organiza>ons  are increasingly  using  execu>ve search  companies • This  is  not  necessarily  an advantage,  since  private companies  do  not  have  the same  formal  responsibility  as the  public  sector  to  achieve equality  and  diversity • Execu>ve  search  companies are  used  to  opera>ng  in  a male/ethnically  homogenous sphere  and  D&I  training  is scarce • It  is  hard  for  women  to  be selected  for  top  posts  when both  the  search  company  and the  hiring  managers  are  male oriented
  • POLICY  FOR  CHANGE  –  LINKS  TO SOCIAL  MEDIA The  Equality  and Human  Rights Commission  (Great Britain)  has recommended  thatthe  selec>on  process for  execu>ve  boardsshould  be  made  more "transparent, professional  and rigorous"  to  allow chairmen  and  search agencies  to  appoint more  women  toboardroom  roles  and to  encourage  more women  to  apply  for these  posi>ons.  See May  2012  ar>cle
  • GAY  IN  THE  WORKPLACE Amnesty  Interna>onal  counts  at  least  83  countries  where homosexuality  is  explicitly  condemned  in  the  criminal  code.Seven  countries  carry  the  death  penalty  for  persons  presumed guilty  of  homosexual  acts.  A  June  2012  ar>cle  outlines homosexuality  in  Muslim  countries.
  • JOB  INTERVIEWS  WITH  LGBT MEMBERSMira  Patel  of  the  US  State  Dept  spoke  about  LGBT  issues  in  the  workplace,  at  the  Inter-­‐American  Development  Bank  in  July  2010.  Victor  Madrigal-­‐Borloz  from  the  Organiza>on of  American  States  outlined  LGBT  issues  from  a  human  rights  perspec>ve.  
  • RACISM  IN  INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONSPar>cipants  in  a  roundtable  on  indigenous  peoples  during  a  diversity conference  at  the  Inter-­‐American  Development  Bank  in  Nov  2009
  • RACISM  IN  INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONSProgress  na>onally  and  via  interna>onal  forums  such  as  these  will  boost  the  numbersand  career  prospects  of  indigenous  peoples,  afro-­‐descendants  and  other  ethnic/racial  minori>es  in  interna>onal  organiza>ons.  It  is  also  necessary  for  employers  to  commit  to  adrac>ng  and  retaining  a  diverse  workforce,  and  take  concrete,  measurable  steps.
  • SEXUAL  HARASSMENT • Sexual  harassment  is s>ll  a  major  problem in  interna>onal organiza>ons • Especially  young women  and consultants  on  short contracts  are vulnerableClick  on  photo  to  watch  a  YouTube  training  video  and  read  an  ar>cle  by  Catalyst.org
