Writing a Diversity Statement for the Faculty Job Search

February 13, 2023, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm EST

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.

Learning objectives:

  • Reflect on ways you are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in your research, teaching, engagement, leadership, or other areas
  • Identify resources that allow you to participate and contribute to DEI initiatives, opportunities, projects, and research
  • Review best practices to write a diversity statement and learn how to critically evaluate diversity statements

**Please note that we will be recording this workshop for Rackham DEI Certificate Program educational use and purposes. The recording will not be used for any commercial purpose. As such, we ask that you please turn off your cameras while we are recording. We know that some people have their names displayed when their camera is turned off, so if you don’t want your name to be visible in the recording, please remove it prior to the workshop. We will have a question and answer portion at the end of the workshop that won’t be recorded, at which time you’re welcome to turn on your cameras**

This workshop is designed for University of Michigan master’s students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact [email protected] to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
