Writing and Reviewing Letters of Recommendation for Equity
November 5, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 1:50 pm
Target Audience: Undergraduates, Masters, PhDs, Faculty
Letters of recommendation are critical in fellowship applications and a variety of other academic evaluations and selection contexts, but they are also one of the most common places that bias is written into academic records. Toward the goal of equity-minded evaluation, this workshop will enable participants to recognize gender and racial biases in letters and learn strategies for writing letters.
