Reason: Diversity statements are plentiful. Unfortunately, many linger in the words giving candidates the impression that they are nothing more than empty promises, and result in alienating talent rather than including them. Rather than tell candidates that you are diverse, equitable, and inclusive, show them. Give examples of how you are driving diversity, cultivating an inclusive culture, and promoting equitable practices. Showing examples of programs will not only validate the diversity statement, it will also show candidates how they will be included and celebrated once they arrive.
