STRIDE (Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence)
The Committee is a team of Northeastern senior faculty who aim to increase faculty diversity by leading interactive faculty discussions focused on understanding implicit biases in evaluation processes and offering good practices in the faculty search process. The workshops are open to all colleges on the Northeastern campus.
There are two STRIDE Committee workshop offerings: STRIDE I and STRIDE II.
STRIDE I: Understanding Implicit Bias in Faculty Searches Discussion is designed for faculty who are serving on search committees who have not previously attended a STRIDE workshop.
STRIDE II: Strategies for Equitable Faculty Searches Discussion is designed for faculty who have previously participated in the STRIDE I discussion in the past 2-3 years. This discussion is based on an acknowledgement that the majority of faculty members recognize the damaging effects of implicit bias in faculty searches and want an opportunity to engage in a conversation about creative solutions, based on new research in the field, that can positively impact their search committees.
Dates and times for both workshops for Fall 2019 are listed below.
