The current unemployment crisis has impacted everything: diversity & inclusion practices, digital job discovery, career pathing + upskilling, and more. The conference will be a chance to tackle these challenges and understand how TA professionals can make a difference.
“We created the Recruitment Automation Community because after speaking with TA teams across the world, we realized that every company was handling major challenges – from diversity to technology implementation to the unemployment crisis – differently,” said Drew Austin, Chief Executive Officer of Wade & Wendy. “This conference is a real opportunity to learn from each other.”
The conference will feature several panel discussions, including: Diversity Now: Building Inclusive Candidate Experience Today, Delivering Candidates Feedback in a Crisis, TA’s Opportunity – and Responsibility – to Tackle Unemployment, The Future of Job Discovery in a Digital World, and Graduating into a Recession: Approaches in Early Career + Campus Recruiting.
Among the speakers lined up are leaders from BBVA, Keller Williams, Accenture, Greenhouse Software, Sequoia, Intuitive, pymetrics, Talent Board, and more. All panels will take live questions from the crowd from the event chat stream that takes place throughout the conference.
Wade & Wendy will be partnering with RecruitersRecruitingRecruiters – to host an interactive session, aimed at helping TA professionals affected by unemployment find their next opportunity.
The conference will also feature a “Talent Acquisition Talent Show,” in which TA professionals will show off their hidden talents.
Conference speakers will include Leslie (Hollingsworth) Vander Gheynst, Kenneth L. Johnson, Nora Miller, SPHR, Gerry Crispin, Gisselle Ruiz, Kevin W. Grossman, TAS, HCS, Matt Alder, Mimi Fox Melton, Roy Baladi, Crystle Johnson, MBA-HRM, CDP (She/Her), Trent Cotton, Frida Polli, PhD, Brad Cook, Steve Levy, Victor P Gaines, II, MS, and more.
The last RAC conference – which took place in July – focused on Diversity & Inclusion, and had over 1300 attendees; featuring speakers from T-Mobile, Unilever, and Workday: it also featured SiriusXM host Torin Ellis who had a powerful keynote address and a heartbreaking tribute to George Floyd in the form of a Q&A session that ended abruptly after 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
