I'm co-Principal Investigator on the UA NSF ADVANCE award, a $3.5M award to the UA to enhance the success of women in science, technology, engineering and math fields. One of the things I've been involved with is training for faculty search committees about the negative impact of unconscious bias. A general link to UA NSF ADVANCE is: http://www.advance.arizona.edu.
What I find especially exciting about this search committee training is the ability to help faculty understand that unconscious bias is a part of the world, but it can be reduced with education.
