Why do we at Laksh hire for LGBTQ+ candidates?
(let’s talk about this)
Impact. Purpose. Problem-Solving.
At status quo, the workforce is largely closeted about their sexuality and disabilities due to social stigmatization. With a consistent effort at making workplaces more diverse and equitable, organizations in India have started taking diversity hiring seriously and this has picked up strong momentum in the past 2 years.
Now there is a strong demand for people from LGBTQIA+ communities and of People with disabilities – but.
📍 Hiring for diversity is difficult – why & how to solve it?
- 1. Poor understanding & empathy by non-community recruiters for candidates –> So, representative leadership is Paramount.
- 2. Copying the Western model of diversity hiring –> Will never be effective until personalized with caste/demographic/status related complexities for the Indian candidate.
- 3. Data is scarce & candidates are not comfortable confiding in recruiters –> So, gaining trust and creating a safe space is a must for any company.
