Presentation Title Stop Playing Diversity with Underrepresented Minority Faculty
Author(s) Ashleigh R. Wright
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Ashleigh R. Wright
Abstract Scope Despite efforts to recruit diverse populations, organizations continue to report low numbers of underrepresented minority (URM) faculty and administrators in STEM. Stories of URM faculty often are disheartening and represent recurring issues that result in workplace dissatisfaction and employee attrition. Challenges that were present decades ago remain, leaving organizations without blueprints for success. With an increased focus on anti-racism, it is time to stop “playing” diversity and begin practicing effective practices that result in environments that promote and advance URM faculty and administrators. This talk will present perspectives about individual and collective actions needed for academic environments to become authentically diverse.
