Diversity Recruiting Platform™ (DRP)

Helping you build diverse teams,
without all of the guesswork.

What is it exactly?

A Diversity Recruiting Platform lets recruiters analyze their hiring funnel in unprecedented detail.

With self-reported diversity data (race, gender, veteran status, ethnicity, etc.) a DRP gives recruiters a clearer view of their representation gaps and the tools they need to fix those gaps. For even greater effectiveness, a DRP integrates with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to help talent teams discover, attract, engage and hire underrepresented talent and track their diversity initiatives.

Reporting, tracking, and demonstrating ROI on diversity initiatives has never been easier.

Talent leaders can view analytics across numerous interview stages like phone screens, technical interviews, or on-site interviews to learn who enters their pipeline, which applicants progress in the process, and who they end up hiring — ultimately allowing managers to identify bias in their hiring process.

Stop guessing. Start hitting your DE&I goals.

Taking a data-brave approach

By taking a data brave approach companies are finally committing to a result they can measure and track. By setting specific and concrete goals, companies can better focus their hiring efforts and achieve greater results for their DE&I initiatives, faster.

Who should use a DRP?

(Ahmm... every talent team)

DRPs are a necessary tool for companies that embrace diversity and a data-driven approach. If you want to build a representative top of funnel, understand the diversity data of your pipeline, engage historically overlooked candidates in an authentic way, build an inclusive employer brand, or measure the efficacy and ROI of your DEIB efforts, you should use a DRP.

While some solutions use artificial intelligence (AI) to infer candidates’ gender and ethnicity, Canvas relies on 100% self-reported data from candidates. This way, instead of confining candidates into predetermined checkboxes and guesstimating who they are, companies are able to empower candidates to bring their whole self to the workplace starting with the hiring process.

“We spend 90% of our time on Canvas versus our ATS as it gives us so much more candidate information to work off of. We also send Canvas’ candidate profiles and information to hiring managers, who help assess talent and source directly on Canvas. Now, our hiring managers are all asking for seats on Canvas instead of being in Lever.”

“I love how I can connect with candidates before events and source for talent I might have missed. It's powerful to be able to see candidates beyond their resume and really make meaningful connections.”

“Before Canvas, we just didn’t know what we didn’t know. So we were banging our heads against the wall trying to do just what we knew—from spending lots of time manually tracking data to going through a high volume of inbound applications.”

“Canvas has changed the way we recruit because we’re now able to source on inbounds based on different skill sets, ethnicity, gender, interests, year in school, location preference—all different things that we can filter on now. This allows us to be much more strategic with our time.”
