Hiring practices play an important role in shaping academic workplaces -- they are oftentimes the first introduction a prospective candidate has to the workplace culture and the potential barriers a candidate may face if employed (Artze-Vega 2019). This workshop is designed to engage participants at all career stages in a critical reflection of hiring practices using the lens of authentic assessments. Authentic assessments mimic real-world situations in which learners engage in realistic decision making, demonstrating a thoughtful understanding of the situation. We propose authentic assessments as a tool to prioritize equity in CTL hiring and help decenter whiteness in our field.
