How can talent acquisition professionals best maximize and work towards opportunities for diverse candidates?
Alexandra, One way is minimizing unconscious bias by adjusting TA processes that are getting in the way of giving diverse professionals a fair chance. We are all vulnerable to biases but are sometimes unaware of the impact our biases can have especially when making decisions. For example, using blind resumes (removing candidate's names plus the name of the university/institutions they have attended), making diverse slates and interviewers the norm are just a few things you can leverage. Plus, learning about how to minimize bias in the candidate decision making process. TA professionals need to be aware of how their own biases can influence the process. Check out the book, Blindspots by Dr. Mahzarin Banaji and Project Implicit, implicit.harvard.edu. Take the IAT test and encourage your team to join you. Also, the book Untapped Talent by Dani Monroe is a great book that can provide insights on leveraging diverse talent. Secondly, partner with HBCUs and HACUs, boutique firms and professional organizations (e.g. ASCEND, INROADS, MLT, Forte, HACE, Consortium, SEO, Robert Toigo Foundation, ALPA) that have access and relationships with diverse talent pools.

What are some of the best ways young professionals can establish integrity and credibility early on in their careers?
Erin, The most common way to earn credibility is through working with someone and proving that you can handle certain situations. Your integrity is demonstrated in how you handle those situations. In today's society, your character is often portrayed in social media. Your ability to show steadfast maturity will demonstrate who you are and what you represent as a person. Although personal references from family and others can vouch for you, only your actions will help you earn the credibility you seek.

Great list, excepting the #4 Practice, while true, one should, to use Malcolm Gladwell 10,000 hours quote (like much other his work) is to quote BS. Gladwell is pop psych at it's worse and to put a number on hours of practice is a disgrace to, well, practicing. Here's a good article about what real practice means. http://www.businessinsider.com/new-study-destroys-malcolm-gladwells-10000-rule-2014-7

Hi Kelly! I'm trying to jump into the finance sector, how do I network with people I come across on LinkedIn (without coming off as creepy?)
Start with meeting them in person. There are groups / organizations from the Financial Women's Association to 85 Broads where women in finance meet. Follow companies in Finance which you are interested in on Linkedin - and then see where you have 1st or 2nd degree connections with which to network with / ask for introductions. And use alumni relations from your college // college bonds are strong - alums always are looking to help fellow alums.

I have a million obligations/projects right now, but often cannot fit everything in. How do you do it? It seems like you never miss a beat.
I prioritize a ton! There's really so much I want to do, but I have to sacrifice and really do what's important. Some days, that means that I'm working 20 hours and other days that means I don't open my laptop and spend all day with friends! I try to take frequent, super short breaks. I find that if I take my eyes of my computer for 15 minutes to meditate or read, I come back feeling great and re-motivated!! Oh, and I do NOT watch television. (Well, I allow myself to watch one show a week.) Seriously, you can accomplish so much more when you give up TV. The first few weeks are hard and you might experience some weird withdrawal symptoms (for example, I hated not knowing what was going on with Grey's Anatomy!). But then, after a few weeks, you realize that it's just a show and it totally doesn't matter!

What does your average day at work look like?
Early morning emails followed by market appointments, photo shoots, reviewing pitches, or brainstorms with the editorial team. Once I’m settled back at my desk, I try to spend time writing and working on my stories or working with my team on theirs. And I continue the constant battle with my inbox that I’m sure I’ll never win.

What advice do you have for focusing on your own professional development and success without comparing yourself to others?
Hi Elana - a great question and one that I have never been asked. I truly believe that you cannot compare yourself to others. We are all unique individuals (thank god!) with different life experiences. Be clear on your path and focus on you. I once heard Michael Phelps talk about competition...he stays in his own lane and never looks left or right. And it is true. Watch him swim. He never looks at anyone else while the rest of the field is wasting time and energy looking around them. He focuses on his success. I think it is a great lesson for us all. Cheers - TLC

I would love to hear more about the financials of freelancing. I'm starting to freelance in addition to my 9 to 5 and how to fill out my taxes is already making my head spin.

"Stop comparing yourself to what you see online" That is a powerful piece of advice. Nowadays we tend to compare ourselves to other all the time. That really hurts our creativity because we see so much online. Sometimes all it takes is a day off the internet to reconnect with our inner creativity.
