This talk will present an overview of literature on best practices to promote diversity among the STEM faculty. It will focus particularly on studies that quantify the cognitive shortcuts that we all make with respect to gender, and with respect to other aspects of diversity, as well as the impact that these have on the climate for and success of faculty underrepresented in STEM fields, including women. Finally, it will discuss practices for recruiting and especially for retaining/mentoring faculty.

Lunch will be provided 12:15 – 1:00pm, Speaker 1:00-2:00pm.

Special emphasis is placed on teaching deaf and hard-of-hearing students, RIT Library's resources, classroom technologies, preparing course media, and the student Information System (SIS). Open to new (and returning) RIT adjunct faculty.
