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?


We invite you to attend the Webinar, which will feature two inspiring speakers followed by a question-and-answer period. Zoom break-out rooms will be available for informal networking after the speakers.
