Uncovering Cultural Biases in the Search and Hiring Process
Is your college or university looking for a professional development program that will improve your ability to recruit, hire and keep diverse faculty and staff?
New Paradigms for Diversifying Faculty and Staff in Higher Education is designed to assist trustees, administrators, human relations/affirmative action officers, faculty, staff, and search committees:
- to identify cultural bias in the search and hiring process
- to invent new strategies to recruit, hire, and keep diverse faculty and staff
- to make institutional culture more inclusive and accepting of diverse employees.
Consisting of a 105 minute video accompanied by a workbook, New Paradigms for Diversifying Faculty and Staff in Higher Education can be used to provide structured and interactive professional development on diverse hiring at your college or university. Participants will be introduced to new paradigms, resources, and recommendations on diverse hiring. Video is designed to be viewed in sections punctuated by discussion questions and theoretical frameworks found in the workbook.
