Writing a Diversity and Inclusion Statement for the Job Market

Facilitator:

Dr. Meg Gregory, Associate Director for Faculty Programs and Services

  • 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
  • Danforth Campus

Event Description

Increasingly, candidates for academic positions are asked to address their commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity (DEI) in the classroom in their job market materials. In this workshop, we will explore how to communicate this commitment effectively. Participants will examine the purpose of a DEI statement, identify generic expectations and conventions of the statement, learn about how this statement can complement other job market documents, and discuss strategies for demonstrating a clearly defined commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity.

Workshops in this series are only open to postdocs and graduate students in their third year and beyond. If you need the workshop sooner than that, for example because you are in a terminal 3-year program, please email Dr. Gregory to register.

For questions about this workshop, please contact Dr. Meg Gregory.
