Hiring and Supporting a Diverse Faculty (Dr. Bonnie Ferri)

This talk will explore some of the issues, challenges, and opportunities for hiring and supporting a diverse faculty in STEM disciplines. What are some policies, practices, and programs that support a healthy and productive culture among a diverse population? Do our promotion and advancement practices need retuning? What contributions can a professional society have to support success? Finally, what can each of us do individually to support diversity, equity, and inclusion in the faculty ranks?
