Frame 1

The American Dream is built on a foundation of equality and freedom. But despite efforts, progress on diversity is still slow. Although public pledges from big businesses have increased, hardly anything has actually changed.

The way we recruit and hire our employees favors certain demographics over others — denying people the American Dream.

The findings are surprising - 38% of hiring managers actively admit to discriminating against potential employees, based on their protected characteristics.

With results like these, get ready for some thought-provoking results that you'll want to bring to your next D&I meeting.
