John Bongiorno, VP of Talent Acquisition at Viacom, hosts dinner and conversation to discuss biases in the hiring process and how to mitigate them efficiently.


Unconscious bias is a constant companion in the hiring process. Some biases are personal: who wants to work with a cat person anyway? Some biases are institutional: candidates from one college are given preferential attention. But improving the hiring process by efficiently reducing bias is necessary to get the best candidates. Gather with other executives to identify biases and formulate strategies to combat them without impacting the hiring experience.
