At Talent Acquisition and Diversity (TAD), we’re dedicated to improving and enhancing the talent acquisition and selection process across the University. We’re committed to strengthening recruiting and sharing best practices; achieving greater staff diversity by improving diversity outreach and collaborating with the schools; and enhancing the candidate and manager experience in the recruitment process. Finally, we strive to ensure compliance with a fair hiring and selection process.
We believe that Harvard University should be an employer of choice for candidates of all backgrounds and disciplines. As a member of the Center for Workplace Development, we seek to provide expertise and consultation to hiring managers on finding, attracting, and selecting talent. We strive to be the central strategic staffing group of the University.
We do all that in a variety of ways. We:
- Manage the Harvard Careers talent management system
- Run programs like the Summer Youth Employment Program
- Provide best practices on inclusive hiring to support and enhance university-wide efforts to recruit diverse talent
- Proactively source diverse talent for the university
- Run programs to facilitate veteran hiring
- Collaborate with University Disability Resources to provide resources to prospective candidates and education to recruiters
- Coordinate with recruiters from across the University to attend job fairs in the Greater Boston area.
