go diverse offers training workshops on gender and diversity competence for employee selection and appraisal processes.
The workshop on diversity conscious employment processes offers the opportunity to discuss topics related to diversity and academic employment processes, starting from the design of role job descriptions to decision making after interviews. Based on current research participants will reflect on unconscious biases and common pitfalls in decision-making processes. The workshop includes exemplary practices for each step of a typical hiring process. Participants develop competences in their task relevant self-reflection and concrete action guidelines for their area of responsibility. This workshop develops previous knowledge of participants about diversity and anti-discrimination in academia further for specialised competences in employment processes.
This offer is directed on team leaders, institutes, working groups and research alliances. The workshops are adjusted to the needs of each team.
go diverse adjusts its offers to the needs. If you have a specific program or idea in mind, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The workshops are commonly led by Dr Claire Jin Deschner of the team go diverse. Depending on the workshop topic or need, we work with freelance trainers specialising in equality and diversity.
Job adverts have a sustainable effect on the application circle (Hentschel et al., 2020) and applicants’ self-presentation (Antidiskriminierungsstelle des Bundes, 2018). The written contact with potential applicants presents a central moment to communicate the own diversity efforts and to increase the diversity of applicants. go d!verse consults researchers and administrators in diversity conscious design and wording of job adverts. On this page, you will find the most important tips in designing job adverts. Please also consider our A-Z for a good choice of the first project phase.
