Guidlines for writing a diversity statement for a job application

Many jobs, especially those that involve teaching, ask the applications express a statement that reflects their commitment to diversity.
For example,

“What contributions are you most proud of that exemplify your awareness and sensitivity towards promoting an inclusionary environment? What have you learned working with diverse populations?”

“Include a separate sheet on which you discuss your qualifications which will enhance your ability to work with culturally diverse and/or minority groups and multi-ethnic programs (Diversity Statement).”

As with all aspects of your job application, this task benefits from suggestions and examples. View this page from the UC Davis Teaching Assistant Consultants Program with advice for writing and samples of diversity statements.
