On Thursday, May 18th, 2017 at 12:0110PM employees will be able to attend Search Advocates- Promoting Diversity and Mitigating Bias on University Search Committees.

Get an inside look at the OSU Search Advocate Program that was profiled in the cover article of the 9/11/16 edition of the Chronicle of Higher Education: “How to Do a Better Job of Searching for Diversity.” ​Oregon State University Search Advocates are outside committee members trained to enhance diversity, validity, and equity on university searches. Search Advocates complete an initial workshop series addressing current research, theory, and practical strategies for working with search committees from position development through integration of the new hire. ​Presented by Anne Gillies, Director of Oregon State University’s Search Advocate program since its inception in 2007.
