About Past DEI Committee Convenings:

The First Convening of Stanford’s Faculty Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Departmental Committees was held on Thursday, January 28, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm, hosted by the Office of Faculty Development, Diversity and Engagement (OFDDE). Faculty and staff members serving on departmental or school-level DEI committees met to learn about DEI-related initiatives and resources available at Stanford, to share information across committees about successful and promising practices, and to build networks among committee members.

The Spring Convening of Faculty DEI Committees was held on Friday, April 23, 2021 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm. The focus of this meeting was on ways to gather information about your department or school’s climate for diversity, equity and inclusion. Brian Cook, Director of Assessment and Program Evaluation in the office of Institutional Research & Decision Support (IRDS) made a presentation about the campus-wide diversity, equity and inclusion survey to be conducted in May and how these data may be useful as you consider your local climate.  In addition, he discussed other campus data resources and ways that you might gain further insight about your department’s climate. An interactive conversation followed by an opportunity for peer-to-peer networking and idea generation concluded the meeting.

Location: Lomita Mall Green South (outdoors grass area, in front of Building 360)
