Monday, September 18, 2023

Dr. Joel Olufowote’s research article, “Recruiting Diverse Candidates: Building Upon the Elusive Framework,” was accepted for presentation at this years’ Indiana Academy of the Social Sciences 94th annual meeting, to be held at Indiana University Kokomo on October 6th. “Up until now, there really isn’t a cohesive, generalizable approach to recruiting a diverse workforce, despite the growing recognition of its workplace benefits,” remarks Dr. Olufowote. “This study captures the varying recruitment strategies of over seventy institutions of higher education seeking diversity professionals and/or diverse educators. I then use this data to construct a best practice framework for talent acquisition and recruitment approaches other institutions seeking a diverse workplace can model and implement.”
