This interactive cross-campus workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn more about the strategies included in the Inclusive Search and Recruitment Toolkit. Participants will also learn from each other as they share successful best practices they have implemented in their own searches.
“The toolkit provides excellent guidance about how to disseminate the job posting to a diverse pool, and strategies to enhance mentoring and preparation for promotion and tenure for our finalists. It is especially effective for candidates from historically underrepresented populations in academia.”
