Inclusive Recommendations: Writing, Requesting, and Assessing Them
Thursday, January 27th 2022, 1pm - 2pm CST
Recommendation letters serve a gate keeping function in many professional and academic contexts. Yet research has shown that bias can creep into our writing – in ways that can influence the careers of engineers. Learning how to write, elicit and assess recommendations more equitably will help create more inclusive and diverse workplaces. This web session will walk participants through how to write inclusive recommendations, and how to request and assess recommendation letters more equitably when on the hiring side.
After participating, participants should be able to:
1. Recognize common patterns of bias that show up in letters of recommendations and strategies for writing more inclusive letters.
2. Identify best practices for eliciting letters of recommendation
3. Recognize best practices when assessing letters and hiring candidates
