About This Workshop

A Two-Day Program

This workshop will offer an opportunity to develop concrete steps for building an inclusive hiring process at your school. Both sessions of this workshop will be highly interactive as we build community capacity and shared understanding about hiring processes at your school. Anyone who plans to be a part of a hiring committee or desires to be on one in the future is encouraged to join this workshop opportunity.

Day 1: Thursday, January 28 

Words Matter: Job Descriptions and Interview Questions
This session of the workshop will focus on the language of the job description and how your school will signal a strong commitment to DEIJ issues. We will examine the pros and cons of explicit expectations related to DEIJ work and the “red flags” for candidates. In addition, we will work through interview questions that focus on the behaviors that align with DEIJ practice and begin building an anti-bias utilize evaluation process. 

Day 2: Wednesday, February 3 

Anti-Bias Evaluations in the Hiring Process
This session of the workshop will focus on the language of the interview rubric hiring committees use with candidates and how to eliminate bias from the candidate debrief. We will focus on difficult conversations, engaging in evaluative frameworks for anti-bias, and explore processes for hiring committees. 

AISNE Workshops include takeaway content, tools and resources. Program recordings will also be provided to support asynchronous and follow-up participant engagement. These resources are summarized and provided on a password accessible web page.
