Drafting DEIJ statements: How do I Articulate my Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice?

September 16, 2021 | 12:00pm to 1:30pm

For Graduate Students and Postdocs 

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) statements are increasingly being requested in the academic job market. In this workshop, you will reflect on what each of these terms mean to you and how to communicate your commitment to DEIJ in practice and future goals. This session will have interactive components in which you will work with others to reflect on examples from DEIJ statements and will have an opportunity to start refining your own statement, based on guiding questions and prompts.

After this workshop participants will be able to: 

  • Understand guiding organizational structures for writing DEI statements.
  • Evaluate components of DEI statements​.
  • Self-reflect on how your own experience and identity informs your commitment to diversity in your own practice​.
  • Learn from others and reflect on how to communicate your values around DEI. ​
