What is Diversity Boost?

When sourcing on our platform, recruiters can now select communities across gender and race/ethnicity to boost to the top of the list, on top of the regular search criteria. We won’t filter out other candidates that fit the criteria, but simply highlight underrepresented candidates in the search results. Candidates are informed on how the data will be used, and the diversity boost only uses self-reported data from the  2.3 million candidates who have chosen to self-identify so far.

For more information on this initiative please see this article:  A new way to highlight underrepresented candidates when sourcing
