Come discuss how to approach writing the diversity statement sometimes requested as part of academic faculty or postdoctoral job applications. We will share examples and guidance from Cornell and other colleges and universities and prompt you to think about ways in which you do, or could, contribute to a university’s mission.

Facilitators: Christine Holmes, Director of Postdoctoral Studies; Colleen McLinn, Associate Dean for Professional Development, Cornell Graduate School; Derina Samuel, Associate Director for Graduate Student Development, Center for Teaching Innovation
