Social Enterprise webinar Logo

This workshop will help social impact organisations improve organisation diversity through recruitment. It will follow from the equity, diversity and inclusion work being championed by Oxfordshire All In in Oxfordshire. As part of the session, we will include a case study of using blind recruitment at Oxford Hub, what we have learned from the process, the benefits it has had, the challenges we have experienced and how we will be working in the future.

Who is it for?

This workshop will help social impact employers who want to improve the diversity in their organisation, and who want to learn from others’ journeys. It will work both for organisations which have experience of recruitment, and those which are just starting to create new jobs.

What will I learn?

We recognise that different organisations will necessarily have to take different routes to promoting diversity in recruitment. We also recognise this is a work in progress for many organisations, and so we want to highlight some emerging best practice and encourage peer support. This workshop will suggest different strategies that can be tested to improve recruitment.

Sara Fernandez, CEO at Oxford Hub

The workshop will reflect the recent experiences of using blind recruitment at Oxford Hub, and it will draw on the learning from the Oxfordshire All In diversity programme for the community sector.

Oxford Hub

Oxford Hub is one of six eScalate hubs across Oxfordshire. The Hub’s vision is one of a cohesive community in which everyone is empowered to give and receive support from the people around them. With Oxford Hub people can create a positive impact through practical volunteering, placements with local charities and by incubating new social action projects and social enterprises.

Oxford Hub is leading ‘Oxford Together’, a city-wide volunteer programme to help those in need during Covid-19.
