PhD+ Workshop – Crafting the Contributions to Diversity Statement

October 20, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm  |  Virtual and In Person


Institutions of higher learning increasingly require faculty applicants to submit a statement of contributions to diversity. Learn what belongs in this statement and how to communicate it effectively.

Judith Estrada, Ph.D., was born and raised in downtown Los Angeles, where she became conscious of educational and social inequalities at an early age. She publishes and presents nationally on the following themes: bicultural pedagogy, decolonizing methodologies, cultural centers as pedagogical spaces, working across difference, fostering Latinx leadership and sense of belonging, pedagogy of solidarity, and critical bicultural pedagogy. She is the author of Consuming ‘Dora the Explorer’ with a Critical Bicultural Lens (in Darder’s Culture & Power in the Classroom, 2012); Impacts of a Diné Decolonizing Pedagogy on Student Affairs Practitioners (in Davidson, C., & Waterman, S., eds.); Indigenous Education Practices in Higher Education: A series of reflections of Diné elder Larry Emerson and his Indigenizing Impact on our Participation in the Profession (in NASPA Journal).

Register by October 12th for in-person attendance in Graduate Student Commons, Room 204. The event will also be accessible virtually via Zoom. Complimentary vegan lunch provided for in-person attendees.
