Inclusive Interviewing

Inclusive interviewing processes are essential aspects of search and selection. Below, please find strategies for inclusive interviewing. These strategies were developed by Dr. Kristen Moore, Associate Professor of Engineering Education at the University of Buffalo.

Planning an Inclusive First-Round Interview

Planning an Inclusive Campus Visit

An inclusive campus visit considers how different people require different experiences to determine whether to take a job and that different bodies require different accommodations and experiences to be most successful. Unlike the short first-round interviews, campus visits are multiple-day events that attempt both to learn more about the candidate but also to allow the candidate to learn about Brandeis' culture and campus. Planning an inclusive visit takes a lot of time and dedicated thinking about the candidate as an individual and should be done from an intersectional framework.
