Implicit Bias in the Search Process

Implicit Bias in the Search process is a workshop developed by the University of Minnesota System’s Office of Equity and Diversity.  There is a workshop related to bias in the staff search process as well as one specific to faculty searches.  They are free of charge and open to all faculty and staff on all campuses of the University of Minnesota.

Identifying And Challenging Implicit Bias in Staff Search Committees 

Departments across the University of Minnesota regularly hire new staff. The university is committed to increasing diversity among its staff, and this includes hiring staff of color, people who identify as women, people with disabilities, and veterans in disciplines where they are underrepresented. The presence of implicit bias in staff searches can inhibit this goal. This workshop will expose participants to the breadth of implicit bias research and will help them recognize shorts cuts that are the result of unconscious or unexamined bias. Participants will learn best practices and resources for addressing implicit bias in the context of staff search committees and hires made by individual supervisors. Faculty and staff participants of departmental search processes are invited to participate in this workshop.
