Who: Faculty

What: This workshop focuses on the faculty hiring process and promotes best practices for recruitment and selection to ensure that the committee reaches an unbiased and fair decision. The workshop is required for all CRC and CERC-level hires and is strongly recommended for all faculty hires, regardless of position.

How: Through informative and interactive elements, this workshop ensures you will:

  1. be able to articulate, understand, and challenge the ways that unconscious bias may have an effect on committee considerations;
  2. have an understanding of the institutional context and legal compliance requirements through which a hiring committee undertakes its work;
  3. be aware of equity, diversity, inclusion, and First Nations, Métis and Inuit collaborations necessary within research and funding decisions;
  4. understand how an equitable hiring committee functions to reach the most informed decision.
