Drexel University is committed to addressing the hiring inequity that often disproportionately affects people from historically underrepresented groups throughout the University. We commit to educating ourselves about the disparities in hiring practices to better understand how we can combat these injustices within all departments. Human Resources (HR), Office of the Provost, and Office of Equality and Diversity (OED) will work in collaboration with departments to ensure that fair and appropriate measures are taken to strengthen the diversity of the pool of job applicants as part of our hiring strategies. These hiring strategies will be implemented to encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds, who are passionate about building and sustaining an inclusive and equitable working and learning environment for all students, staff and faculty, to apply.

These hiring strategies include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) careful selection of hiring committees so that they reflect diversity of rank, gender, ethnicity, discipline and beyond; (2) strategic authoring of job advertisements to emphasize diversity up front and to succinctly distinguish between required and desired qualification; (3) thoughtful placement of job advertisements through websites and organizations that elevate applicants from historically underrepresented groups; (4) requesting diversity statements from job applicants using clearly outlined criteria; (5) regular communication with the Chief Diversity Officer and Human Resources in which strategies 1-4 are discussed, deliberating the hiring successes and challenges in addressing these strategies.

Drexel University and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University are committed to equality of employment opportunity and do not discriminate against applicants, or employees based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, identity and expression, disability or veteran status. Moreover, we are committed to recruiting and advancing women and minorities at all levels within the University.
