Shirley Alexander, Sr. HR Consultant
The recruitment and retention of a diverse and inclusive workforce is our commitment. As an institution that embraces cultural diversity and inclusiveness, we are committed to attracting applicants that are diverse in background, education, knowledge, and experience.
Our efforts have been proactive in attaining a diverse workforce through various initiatives, such as job fairs and community outreach engagements, advertising through listservs and websites visited by underrepresented groups and highlighting our commitment to diversity on our job applicant website and in each of our postings.
Our investment to diversity hiring is not just an impulse or simply something nice to do----it’s a commitment that is reflected in the collective makeup of our workforce.
We want our employees and our applicants to know that we are deliberate in going beyond the “equal employer” by making our workforce diverse through our hiring practices, trainings, opportunities for mentoring, actively responding to feedback and most critically our executive level support.
Our collaboration with Division for Equity & Inclusion, HSC Office for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, New Mexico Governor’s Commission for Disability and EOD creates opportunities to build partnerships with HR Agents with respect to diversity hiring processes and initiatives.
These training opportunities support our efforts for inclusion in everyday workplace situations by avoiding bias in recruitment, helping managers to recognize implicit bias and emphasizing positive changes.
We are committed to the hiring of Veterans and people with disabilities. Our Veteran Hiring Preference program grants qualified veterans’ additional consideration for vacant staff positions available within the UNM system.
We are equally committed to hiring individuals with disabilities and working with the New Mexico Governor’s Commission on Disability to support and enhance our workplace efforts to ensure accessibility and inclusiveness for our employees with disabilities.
Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace goes beyond just attracting a diverse pool of applicants. It is an ongoing and transparent fostering of a workplace culture of inclusion.
