Many companies have or are considering diverse candidate slate recruiting requirements and yet most have been uncertain of their effectiveness. Researchers at University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business showed that diverse candidate slates work when there are 2 or more women or minorities as finalists. When there is just 1 woman or minority candidate in a pool of 3 to 11 finalists, their odds of being hired were statistically zero. When 2 or more women are present, their odds of being hired is 79 times greater. When there are 2 or minorities present, their odds of being hired are 193 times greater.
