Get Ready for the "During"

 

What

 

Why / Research Rationale

Develop a diversity reputation.

 

Reflect upon the complexities of "Tokenism" at every step of the search process.

 

Develop an information packet for interviewees (including topics such as course-loads, research facilities, funding information, URI & departmental strategic plans, and work-life resources & policies ).

 

 

With a good reputation, you can attract lots of candidates, underrepresented or otherwise, with little work (Cox & Blake, 1991; Greening & Turban, 2000).

 

Tokens, no matter who they are, have a reduced chance of being hired when there are just a few of them in the pool (van Ommeren, et al., 2005).

 

All candidates are attracted by similar factors: Job, institution, diversity, & recruiter factors (Thomas & Wise, 1999).
