Diversity statements are becoming increasingly common in the academic job application process, but what are they and how do you write one? Participants will learn about the components of a reflective and thoughtful diversity statement, see sample statements, and brainstorm their first draft. Participants who have already started writing a diversity statement and would like some feedback should bring copies for individual or peer feedback. Lunch provided. Facilitated by Ian Althouse, Center for Teaching and Learning.
Registration for this event will open September 1st.
By the end of the session, participants should be able to:
- Define the diversity statement and its purpose
- Detail a general structure for a diversity statement
- Analyze and identify the characteristics of an effective diversity statement in order to draft a diversity statement
