Fitting DEIBA Into My Multi Faceted Role in Academia

Course Description
We need to be intentional about the integration of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and accessibility (DEIBA) in our professional lives. In this course, participants will engage in a myriad of activities to identify where and how DEIBA can be integrated into their professional goals as it relates to research, teaching, and service at multiple stages of their career: post-doctorate, pre-tenure, and post-tenure. A gap analysis identifying the components of an equity-minded syllabus will be explored, and a template syllabus will be created during this course. Participants will also participate in an interactive exercise that will demonstrate how to incorporate diverse perspectives or skills into research initiatives.

Duration: 60 minutes
