Some job applications in higher education nowadays ask for applicants to include a diversity statement in their application package. This past summer, I applied for a university librarian job that asked for one and I had no idea where to begin. This led me down a rabbit hole trying to figure out what to include and I ended up conducting additional research about this trend. The ask for a diversity statement can come in a couple of different ways as some job applications will simply ask for a statement while others may ask for how to include it in your research. I found writing a diversity statement to be a great learning experience and I would like to share some of this research along with tips on what to include in a diversity statement.
