SPECIAL: What is HR's Role in Creating Diverse and Inclusive Organisations? Interview with Torin Ellis

Welcome to the third of our series of summer special episodes of The Digital HR Leaders Podcast, providing an outside in perspective on HR.

The brutal killing of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police on May the 25th has unleashed a sustained and unparalleled wave of protests around the world. This terrible incident highlighted once again, the scourge of racial injustice and the responsibility we all have to speak up against discrimination in any of its ugly and reprehensible forms. We all need to commit to help to drive change in our companies, in our HR and People Analytics communities and in our societies.

The guest on this episode of the podcast is Diversity Strategist, Torin Ellis, who has worked with companies ranging from small 20 person startups to some of the biggest multinational companies, to help them identify inhibitors that stall the consistent achievement of the diversity, equity and inclusion objectives achieved through recruitment.

We start our discussion with the glaring injustices that the killing of George Floyd, once again, highlighted and then transition to how HR and recruiting professionals can support their organisations to be truly inclusive and equitable by following a simple and purposeful mantra, focus on people.

In our conversation Torin and I discuss:

  • How the killing of Mr Floyd and the process that it has inspired made Torin and other black people he knows feel
  • What those of you listening can do to help make a difference
  • Why true diversity, inclusion and equity results require leadership, un-wavering support and above all a focus on people
  • Why hiring managers are at the crux of progress and how data can reveal some uncomfortable truths
  • Examples of companies, including Nike and Allovue, who have created more inclusive organisations

This episode is a must listen for anyone interested in how to embed diversity in their organisations to create more inclusive and equitable workplaces. So that is Business Leaders, CHROs, Senior HR Leaders and anyone in a People Analytics, HR Business Partner or Talent Acquisition role. Support for this podcast is brought to you by Insight222.
