Biopsychology Colloquium: Writing a Diversity Statement for the Faculty Job Search

Dr. Gina Shereda, Program Lead for STEM Professional Development, Rackham Graduate School
Tuesday, October 27, 2020
12:00-1:00 PM
Increasingly, hiring committees are interested in how prospective faculty job candidates will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a result, many academic employers have begun to request a “diversity statement” as part of the faculty job application process. In this interactive session, we will discuss best practices for writing diversity statements, examine a sample statement, and work through activities designed to help participants start writing their own statement.

Gina Shereda is the Program Lead for STEM Professional Development at Rackham. She works with the Professional and Academic Development team to develop innovative programming including workshops, seminars, networking events, panels, job simulations, and career treks for U-M graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. She received her Ph.D. in microbiology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2013. Prior to joining Rackham, she held roles at U-M as an instructional consultant at the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching and as the Associate Director of the Science Learning Center.
