Search Advocate Series Session 1 of 2

Monday, August 28, 2017 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM

This workshop is the first in a 2-part series that prepares people to become OSU Search Advocates.  Search Advocates are process experts who serve as external search committee members--outside their own departments/disciplines--to enhance the fairness, validity, and diversity of university search and selection efforts from position development through integration of the new employee.  To become a search advocate, you must complete both sessions of the workshop series, each of which is 5.5 hours including working meals.  Session 1 provides an overview of the search process and search advocate role, an introduction to current research and theory about implicit bias and diversity, a brief overview of the legal environment, and the first steps for a search advocate to take in working with the search committee and hiring unit to develop or refine the position description.  To register, go to http://oregonstate.edu/training/course_list.php?cat_id=45 and log in with your onid username and password.
