EEO & Diversity Training for Screening Committees
May 11, 2018 |
The San Diego Community College District will hold an EEO & Diversity Training for Screening Committees from 1-5 p.m., June 15, 2018 at the District Office in Room 245.
Please email Erica Hernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org to register by Friday, June 1, 2018. After you have registered, and a few days before the training date, you will receive an email with a copy of the Screening Committee Responsibilities PowerPoint Presentation that has been developed by the HR Employment Office. Although there is some crossover, the live training that you registered for will not cover the vast majority of the information contained in this PowerPoint, so please be sure to read it before you serve on the committee.
Please plan to arrive on time and remain for the full time period. Credit will only be given to participants who attend the full duration of the training.
The San Diego Community College District is committed to legal compliance, as well as to provide as much support as possible for screening committees to successfully navigate through the hiring process.
The California Code of Regulations, Title 5 and the SDCCD EEO Plan collectively require that all persons who are involved in the recruitment and screening/selection of personnel must be trained on equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws, regulations and policies as well as education on the benefits of workforce diversity and ways to eliminate bias from the hiring process.
Completion of the “EEO and Diversity Training for Screening/Selection Committees” qualifies you to serve in any capacity (on the screening/selection committee) for 3 years from the date of your training. If you anticipate participating on a District Screening Committee, in any capacity, you are encouraged to register for the training now. If you will be the chairperson of a screening committee in the near future, you will need to ensure that your committee members have received this training in advance of their service on your committee. Your efforts now will help avoid unnecessary delay to your committee since screening and interviewing cannot proceed until all committee members have completed this training. Please call the Human Resources Department/Employment Office at 619-388-6579 (after greeting, select 1, 1) to check your status of eligibility to serve on a committee before committing to serve.
