With the increased visibility of issues of DEI, employers are beginning to consider how their employees contribute to the diversity of the institution. Many academic employers have begun to request a diversity statement as part of the 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.
