Promising Practices for Equitable Hiring: Guidance for NIST Laboratories
Elizabeth Hoffman, Heather Evans
To ensure NIST is taking a strategic and long-term approach to building a diverse workforce, explicit steps should be taken in hiring practices. The best practices described in this report provide a roadmap for Hiring Managers, whether hiring a part-time student researcher or filling a full-time permanent career position. The focus of this report is on practices that target the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) workforce at NIST, but they can be extended to other career tracks as well. Using these practices, NIST can achieve greater organizational diversity, improve innovation, and find top talent using evidence-based, effective intervention strategies. The report also provides additional information about the value proposition of diversity and inclusion for productive, innovative workplaces. This report reflects the status of NIST programs and plans as of spring 2021.
