Increasing numbers of colleges and universities are requiring a Diversity Statement as part of the application process for faculty positions. What are committee members' expectations for this statement, and how should you go about crafting one? In this workshop combining interactive exercises, best practices and real-world examples, Dr. Francisco Ramos will guide participants through the process of writing a diversity statement for the faculty job market.
