    Apologies for cross-posting!

    Hi everyone! We are a group of researchers interested in looking at "diversity statements" that are becoming increasingly requested in academic job/program apps.


    We are interested in exploring this in the context of academia (to start), and so we are hoping to reach out to academics who have been on the job market in recent years (last 2-3 years) and have written diversity statements in that process, or PhD students who have applied to PhD programs in the last 2-3 years or so.


    If you've written a diversity statement yourself, we would really appreciate it if you could take a 15-minute survey to anonymously share your diversity statement and also share your experience/thoughts writing the diversity statement. The survey will take around 15 minutes – you will be asked to share with us a de-identified version of your diversity statement, and to fill out a questionnaire.


    Here is the link: http://bit.ly/diversity-statement-survey


    We would really appreciate your participation, and please share the link with anyone else that you think would be interested to snowball it further!
