The best recruiting methods use a multi-pronged approach to finding candidates.  This is doubly true for identifying minority candidates and other talented professionals for hard-to-fill professions. In this session, Dr. Christopher Lee will present a model for identifying, cultivating, and selecting the most diverse and capable professionals possible using networking techniques.  It will also offer techniques for getting the support and assistance of the right stakeholders to ensure recruitment efforts are timely, pervasive, and effective.
