Online: Rackham North—Writing a Diversity Statement for the Faculty Job Search
March 19, 2020, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm EDT
In light of COVID-19 and in alignment with university policy, Rackham is delivering our professional and academic programming when possible in alternative formats. This workshop will not be held in person but instead will be offered using Zoom technology. Please be sure to check your email the morning of the online workshop for the link to participate in the program.
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.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
Registration is required at https://myumi.ch/XeD0b.
We want to ensure full and equitable participation in our events. If an accommodation would promote your full participation in this online event, please indicate your accommodation requirements in the registration page for this event.
