Departments across the U of M regularly participate in searches and selection processes. The University is committed to increasing diversity among its staff, faculty, and students in admissions, promotions, scholarship decisions, and other selection processes. The presence of implicit bias in these processes can inhibit this goal. This workshop exposes learners to the breadth of implicit bias research and will help them recognize shortcuts resulting from unconscious or unexamined bias. Learners will be introduced to promising practices and resources for addressing implicit bias in the context of search and selection processes. 

Please note: the OED Education Program recommends taking our Addressing Implicit Bias in Search and Selection Processes as a team, department, or search committee in order to create shared language and protocols for addressing bias in search and selection processes. 

In addition to this workshop our colleagues in the Medical School, Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) offer a workshop for Medical School Faculty and Staff. For more information visit the ODEI website here.
