In this episode we speak to Iveliz Crespo, Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisor at the international law firm Reed Smith, about social mobility at work and how to redesign hiring, performance measurement and talent development practices to be more equitable. Iveliz shares examples of how elitism comes into work practices and crops up in everyday interactions — a topic we agree isn’t discussed enough in corporate DEI. They also share ideas of systemic solutions to help folks overcome imposter syndrome, and a wealth of tips on how to reshape hiring and talent practices to minimise bias and maximise equity. We especially loved Iveliz’s points about culture fit and referrals in hiring, and protective hesitation in feedback & performance measurement.
