Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity

Often, postdoctoral instructors receive little guidance on what terms such as diversity, equity, and inclusion mean or how to implement these ideas in your mentoring or teaching practice. Instead, fearing that they will 'get it wrong,' many instructors avoid engaging with issues of diversity and inclusion altogether. In this workshop, we break down these terms to create a shared language around diversity, inclusion, equality, and equity, and discuss strategies for inclusion.

Designing Your Life for Postdocs

This workshop uses design thinking to address the “wicked problem” of designing your life, postdoc, and career. This workshop offers a framework, tools, and most importantly a place and a community of peers and mentors where we’ll work on these issues through hands-on exercises. This workshop employs a design thinking approach to help postdocs from any field develop a constructive and effective approach to finding and designing their time at Stanford and vocation after.

If you are doing (or considering) the postdoc teaching certificate, a teaching statement is required, so you should definitely attend.
