Writing Your Diversity Statement

Wednesday, January 27, 2021 - 1:00pm to Thursday, January 28, 2021 - 2:55pm

Many jobs, especially academic positions, ask students to submit a “diversity statement” with their application materials. Many job seekers, unfortunately, treat such a document as an afterthought, when in fact it is a powerful opportunity to talk about your goals, values, and the kind of faculty member or academic leader you aspire to be.  

In this session, Kayon Hall (HALE) will walk you through the process of understanding what is expected in a strong diversity statement and help you clarify the values you will highlight in your own diversity statement. At the end of this session, you will have a draft document that you can confidently refine, knowing it represents you well.
