Writing Diversity Statements for Academic Jobs

Diversity statements are a new and increasingly common addition to academic job applications. Join us for a workshop on writing a diversity statement that demonstrates to search committees how your teaching, research, and service will enhance diversity and equity efforts on their campus. We’ll discuss what a diversity statement is, study samples from across disciplines to identify effective strategies, and begin crafting rough drafts.

Access the workshop presentation and downloadable materials in Kaltura Mediaspace.
