Become an Inclusion Advocate!

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is looking for employees willing to serve as “Inclusion Advocates.” These individuals will serve in a formal role on search committees, with specific responsibilities designed to promote inclusive hiring practices.
 
At a minimum, and in consultation with the search committee chair, Human Resources, and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, an Inclusion Advocate will:

  • Serve on search committees for all full-time positions.
  • In most cases, be selected from outside the hiring department. A closely related department, even if within the same school or division, is encouraged.
  • Review and approve recruitment plans and job advertisements prior to the beginning of a search.
  • Review availability and application pool data and, if necessary, suggest additional recruitment options and/or changes to the recruitment plan and/or search timeline.
  • Provide a statement reviewing the search process, and assuring full inclusive practices were implemented during the search, and/or acknowledging concerns related to the search prior to the final hire being approved.

We are looking for faculty and staff participants who are deeply committed to equity and diversity on campus, possess good listening skills and empathy, and are eager to promote policies and best practices that retain and recruit the strongest LCC workforce possible.
 
Interested? Sign up today for the upcoming two-day training session: 2-4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, and 2-4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, in the Centre for Engaged Inclusion.
 
You must complete both sessions to be eligible to serve. Refreshments are included. At the conclusion of the second session, you can decide whether to have your name included on the list of advocates willing to be invited to serve in this role.
