Implicit Bias and the Tenure Process workshops are tailored to provide insight into how implicit bias can impact processes related to tenure. Participants will learn:

  • An introduction to the concept of implicit bias and how these unconscious, automatic mental processes may impact behaviors such as evaluating candidates during faculty search and/or RPT processes
  • Empirical research on vitae, letters of recommendations, and teaching evaluations to illustrate the impact of implicit bias on decisions
  • Effective practices and strategies for faculty search and RPT committees.
