The Greenhouse podcast: Talent Makers, featuring Gary L. Davis and Bridgette Gray

TM podcast 2022

Talent Makers are leaders who believe that talent is their top business priority. Rather than seeing hiring solely as the role of People teams, Talent Makers champion better hiring and strengthen DE&I across their entire organizations to achieve business success. On the Greenhouse Talent Makers podcast, join host Micah Gebreyes, Senior Manager of Editorial Content at Greenhouse, as she sits down with hiring managers and recruiters who are changing the game in diverse and inclusive hiring.

In this episode, Micah is joined by Gary L. Davis, Diversity Talent Acquisition Lead for Digital Media at Adobe and Bridgette Gray, Chief Customer Officer at Opportunity@Work. We'll discuss how to grow and promote from within, as well as how to best understand and utilize hiring data for underrepresented groups, such as workers who are Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs).

It's about meeting talent where they are – and giving people the resources they need to have equitable outcomes.”

You can feel like you're inclusive, but that doesn't automatically mean every person feels like they belong in that space. Belonging is key.”

The more intentional companies are with their DE&I hiring practices, the more positive the impact.”
