This is great thank you.

I would add two things if I may. The interview process, and your potential list of candidates starts the minute the job ad is posted, run the ad through a gender decoder like and remember what you say about culture may encourage some people apply over others eg if you advertise gin Fridays you may deter non drinkers, advertise your games consoles and deter more senior/ non cis men candidates

Secondly respect the candidates, don't let them leave thinking that was awful, if they suffer from imposter syndrome they may never try to apply for another job again. Leaving them feeling helpless and stuck in current job.
