“Implicit Bias” Workshop for Non-tenure track faculty and staff
- Wednesday, September 29, 2021
- 12 pm - 1:30 pm
- Virtual (viewing link will be sent within two weeks of the workshop)
This workshop is geared towards research faculty, instructional faculty, academic professionals, and other staff members who are serving on search, hiring, and promotion committees. The goal of these workshops is to increase awareness of the impact of implicit bias and to facilitate equitable decision-making.
As a participant in the workshop, you will learn the following:
- Awareness of implicit bias and how these unconscious, automatic mental processes impact behaviors such as evaluating candidates during search and promotion processes.
- Empirical research on curriculum vitaes and letters of recommendation to illustrate the impact of implicit bias on decision making.
- Best practices for mitigating implicit bias on search and promotion committees.
*Spaces for the workshops are limited. Once capacity is reached, the registration form will automatically close and not accept any additional submissions.*
These workshops will be held virtually by Tia Jackson-Truitt, Ph.D., Director of Diversity and Inclusion Education and Training.
NOTE: This workshop is different from the implicit bias workshop required for tenured and tenure-track faculty members who serve on search, promotion, and tenure committees. For more information about those workshops, click here.
