Writing at the Intersections: Crafting a Diversity Statement

This event is part of series:

May 10, 2022 - 4:00pm
Lathrop 282 -- Map:
Dr. Harriett Jernigen

In their efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, universities and employers are increasingly requiring prospective postdocs, fellows and employees to include a diversity statement in their application materials. This workshop will show you how to approach the diversity statement as a story about the intersections at which you stand and how those intersections inform your scholarship and teaching. In collaboration with others, you will review the basic characteristics of successful diversity statements and then work on your own, whether a first draft or one you’ve already written.
Guest Speaker: Dr. Harriett Jernigen, Lecturer, Writing & Rhetoric Studies, Stanford
