When choosing an elected official, do you care if the person is qualified or as Mitch McConnell put it, candidate quality?
Qualified candidates will be placed on an equally ranked eligible list. Additional evaluation may be required prior to establishment of the eligible list and/or final selection. Some positions may require those placed on the eligible list to undergo a criminal background check before being considered for employment. A hiring panel will evaluate the applicants, and conduct interviews for open positions. You recently heard a prospective hiring panel member make the statement: “I believe the most qualified person should get the job” and they need to be a “good fit.” What are the assumptions underlying this thinking, policy, procedure, or practice? How could this thinking, policy, procedure, or practice burden communities of color? (women, LGBTQ, etc.) How do you involve the most impacted in the decision-making process? What are some strategies for reducing or eliminating negative impacts?
