It’s time to change that.” His idea is to make the percentage of candidates they interview the opposite of their current statistics, or “the other side of the pendulum.” For example, “if we are 98% white males, we make sure that at least 98% of our outbound recruiting efforts are focused on everyone besides white males. The goal would be to always bring the single majority back to the middle of the pendulum by ensuring a percentage of candidates we look at are different.”
