Writing a Diversity Statement

Date: 
Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Location: 

Assembly Hall, 4th Floor, Rackham Building

Increasingly, hiring committees are interested in how prospective faculty job candidates will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a result, many academic employers have begun to request a "diversity statement" as part of the faculty job application process. In this interactive session, we will discuss best practices for writing diversity statements, examine sample statements, and work through activities designed to help participants start writing their own statement.
