Improving diversity in upper management means changing frontline hiring


Companies often complain that they don’t have enough diverse candidates to promote. The NFL‘s “Rooney Rule” provides a way to break the pattern

When Zabeen Hirji joined the Royal Bank of Canada as a teller in 1977, all of the company’s executives were white men. By 2015, eight years into her tenure as the bank’s chief human resources officer, women held two-fifths of those roles at RBC and visible minorities, 16%.
RBC’s leadership may not yet represent the diversity of the population at large, but it’s far ahead of the broader business world. Too many companies of all sizes are stuck closer to the “before” in that tale of transformation than the “after.” They often blame the so-called “pipeline problem”: the notion that there aren’t enough qualified women or people of colour available. The more likely culprit is unconscious bias, a set of assumptions that cause recruiters or managers to overlook candidates because they don’t fit their mental model of the ideal employee. One solution? Mandate that every slate of candidates must include people from under-represented backgrounds.
