Can AI Increase Both the Efficiency & Diversity of our Hires?
After a decade as an academic neuroscientist at Harvard & MIT, plus a Harvard MBA, Dr. Frida Polli decided to fix the recruiting process. She started her company, Pymetrics, to utilize machine learning, data science, and AI technologies in order to increase the efficiency of candidate to role matching, remove bias, and increase the share of diverse hires. Dr. Polli will join us to discuss the research behind her company’s products, as well as examples of how it already works for multiple large companies worldwide.

In this segment we will discuss a topic of interest chosen beforehand by participants.
11:45 Competencies in Executive Recruiting
The integration of the executive recruiting function with talent management, leadership development, and succession planning is one of the top priorities for our members. How do we achieve this? By communicating and collaborating across the various pillars of the HR function. Member Enrique Washington is the leader of the executive recruiting function at ESPN, and also happens to be an expert in the development and use of competency models– so much so, he has published a book on the subject! Enrique will lead us in a conversation on how competencies can be applied in executive recruiting to drive alignment on executive assessment, helping inform a better quality of hire.
