Implicit Bias: A Guide for Pepperdine Hiring Committees

Students enjoying ice cream while traveling abroad

The following collection of resources is a five-step guide on implicit bias assembled by the Seaver Diversity Council at Pepperdine University to help faculty and staff hiring committees make equitably-informed decisions. The self-paced course can be completed in under 40 minutes. Completion of this course is required for members of faculty search committees. The intent is that each individual serving on a hiring committee at Seaver College takes the time to work through this brief material as a way of initiating a conversation on how hidden bias may affect the hiring process at Pepperdine. Those not serving on a hiring committee who do not need a certificate of completion are invited to work through the implicit bias material on their own.
