Increasing STEM faculty diversity by gender and race/ethnicity systematically challenges academic assessment processes formed for a less diverse and globally competitive workforce. In this workshop, Helen Moore presents research-based opportunities for us to identify, debate and work to resolve subtle organizational practices that reinforce implicit biases in the sciences. We’ll discuss how evaluation processes within academic organizations reproduce biases, consider whether STEM pedagogy is biased to such an extent that evaluations by students and peers are skewed and might need modification to best assess merit, and learn how implicit biases in science and its sub-fields influence our letters of reference and promotion and tenure reviews. Then, we’ll examine some merit and research-based strategies for evaluating for excellence in STEM fields.
