In higher education, the candidate selection process is rarely, if ever, a one-person decision. Hiring the right (or wrong!) candidate may impact your institution for years to come.
What hiring processes best honor the unique talents, career paths, and lived experiences of a diverse slate of candidates? How can you ensure a candidate is a “good fit” for your team and institution, and not simply a reflection of your search committee? How can you minimize bias in all stages of hiring, from the job description, to the interview process, to negotiating salary and benefits?
Explore resources on developing a search committee, mitigating unconscious bias, and other tactics to help create an inclusive and equitable selection process.
