For faculty

You are a gatekeeper to your field. You have power. Quick tips that you can put into practice right now to help increase participation from underrepresented groups

  1. Expand your pool: Move beyond your personal network — write up a nice ad that explicitly states that you and EAPS value diverse participation, then post it on your website and send it out to the admins at relevant programs (especially local and regional ones). You can send these to UG/MS programs for a grad position and to PhD programs for a postdoc position.
  2. Increase the odds: Set up a short zoom chat to anyone who reaches out to you expressing interest from an underrepresented group and is potentially qualified for your position. This gives you a chance to find someone you might not have ranked highly on paper alone. This small step may also be enough to get someone who might not think they’re cut out for grad school to go ahead and apply —  and you may be at the top of their list. Even if in the end you decide they aren’t a good fit and you don’t recommend they apply, you can still offer advice and encouragement.
