Recruiting a Diverse and Excellent Faculty: Best Practices for Search Committees

Excellence—embracing and exhibiting the highest level of quality in research, teaching and service—can be achieved only when diverse perspectives are engaged. This workshop, conducted by Anne M. Etgen, Professor Emerita of Neuroscience at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, illustrates why we recruit faculty for diversity and excellence, obstacles to achieving faculty diversity, how schemas affect the careers of women and underrepresented minorities, and what we can do to address these issues.  Supplemental materials are provided to assist search committees during the faculty search process. Total running time: 1 hour and 40 minutes.
