If you’re working on documenting your teaching, you may read about “diversity statements.” These newish documents are asking candidates to write about their experiences (most often related to teaching, research, and service) related to anti-discrimination work. To start brainstorming what could go in your diversity statement, try to answer the following teaching-related questions:
- How have you implemented classroom interactions and policies to make it easier for all to learn?
- What considerations do you put into representation present in your course materials?
- What have you or could you do to work toward equity and structural justice in and out of the classroom?
