“Diversity 101: Why Should We Care, the Role of Implicit Bias and Privilege, and What are Some of the Solutions”
This webinar is part of the National Postdoctoral Association monthly myPostdoc webinar series. Corporations, non-profit, and governmental organizations as well as colleges and universities value and want a diverse workforce. As a prospective employee you will be asked about ways in which you support diversity regardless of whether or not you belong to an underrepresented group. Therefore, they also will look positively upon job applicants that have training in this area. This workshop will explore why diversity is important and will familiarize participants with the concepts of implicit bias and privilege. This is a great opportunity for participants to start training in this very important area of professional development. They will understand some of the challenges and the possible solutions, and how they can help to address the problem of underrepresentation.
