    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;Diversity is a key feature of a modern and successful workplace. It allows access to a larger talent pool, increases&lt;br&gt; the number of viewpoints and experiences in a team, which results in improved productivity and the personal&lt;br&gt; growth of all team members. To increase workplace diversity, it is important to assess and restructure&lt;br&gt; recruitment processes to ensure objectivity and inclusiveness.&lt;br&gt; Employers play a central role in any discussion on inequalities, discrimination or gender gaps. &amp;ldquo;They and their&lt;br&gt; agents have the power to influence, if not determine, the shape and degree of inequalities in their organisations&lt;br&gt; (1).&amp;rdquo; It is the responsibility of an employer to inform themselves, to raise awareness amongst employees and&lt;br&gt; individuals involved in recruitment processes, and to actively follow strategies to mitigate any imbalances, even&lt;br&gt; if caused unconsciously. Such bias can mean one is failing to hire the best person for the job and potentially&lt;br&gt; missing out on valuable talent.&lt;br&gt; This handbook was created to inform institutes participating in the LIBRA project and to support them in hiring&lt;br&gt; the most suitable candidate, and increasing workplace diversity, which provides the basis for creativity and&lt;br&gt; ultimately success. LIBRA is a project funded by the European Commission, which brings together 13 research&lt;br&gt; institutes in life sciences in 13 European countries. They are all members of the alliance EU-LIFE, which aims to&lt;br&gt; build and promote excellence in life sciences throughout Europe. Their commitment to excellence is also a&lt;br&gt; commitment to gender equality.&lt;br&gt; The ten core LIBRA institutes developed a tailored Gender Equality Plan, which aims to bring about long lasting&lt;br&gt; and profound structural changes to remove institutional barriers and empower women to be equally successful&lt;br&gt; as men in their research careers. The Gender Equality Plans address four main areas of intervention, which aim&lt;br&gt; to increase the number of women in senior academic positions. One of the four areas is to revise and improve&lt;br&gt; recruitment policies and procedures.&lt;br&gt; One of the biggest challenges in recruitment is to overcome unconscious biases and to structure the individual&lt;br&gt; processes. In order to do so, this handbook compiles a series of recommendations for a more fair, objective, and&lt;br&gt; transparent recruitment process for senior leadership positions in science research institutes. These&lt;br&gt; recommendations can also be applied more broadly to include the recruitment of PhD students, postdocs and&lt;br&gt; technical staff.&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
