Spring 2021: Recruiting, Supporting, and Retaining Diverse Faculty

This series of discussions invites faculty members, department chairs and deans to engage with new approaches to recruiting diverse STEM faculty. We will share resources accumulated by ASCN Working Group 5, share collective knowledge and experiences, and discuss strategies for working towards a more diverse academy. At the end of each session, participants will apply what they learned to hiring practices in their own departments and institutions, culminating in a strategic plan. Participants will identify levers for change, and be supported by the working group and fellow participants in advocating within their sphere of influence.

All discussions will take place virtually at 3pm ET/2pm CT. Participants who attend all five Spring 2021 sessions will receive a certificate of completion.
