Inclusive Hiring: Best Practices in Recruiting
Learn hiring best practices to ensure a diverse, inclusive, and equitable search and selection
In collaboration with the Office of Campus Life, the Office of Human Resources has created a new learning pathway to address the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to create an inclusive workplace through a collection of short, easy-to-digest e-learning courses.
The pathway helps you recognize bias at work and have productive conversations about diversity and inclusion that support Phase 2 of the Inclusive Excellence plan. Open to all staff and faculty, this DEI Learning Pathways is a certificate program.
To support you in your personal career goals, we want to encourage you to explore AsuccessfulU and all the development courses we offer. Every staff and faculty member is set up with an AU Profile where you can set goals, add or complete items on your To-Do Lists, or explore all courses by using the search feature in the Learning Tab plus.

American University embraces diversity in its broadest sense. We dedicate the necessary resources to recruiting, welcoming, supporting, and retaining outstanding students, faculty, staff, and leadership who significantly improve the diversity of our community.
We encourage all of our community to participate in the many trainings, activities and events designed to start conversations and help us find our similarities and understand our differences, including our diversity and inclusion courses.
In an effort to further our commitment to Inclusive Excellence at AU, Human Resources offers the affinity group program. Affinity groups, also known as employee resource groups, are a collection of people linked by a common purpose or interest. These common interests can include job functions, race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, education, geography, military status, etc.
