LEARN ABOUT DIVERSITY
Workplace Diversity Series
Living our values of respect, responsibility, discovery, and excellence
Led by the MU Diversity Trainers Collaborative, the Workplace Diversity Series provides staff, supervisors and faculty an opportunity to learn about and discuss various workplace diversity issues with colleagues from across campus. Working in a diverse environment brings both opportunities and challenges. By becoming more informed, gaining skills, and having conversations with others, we can improve and enhance our workplace relationships as well as our overall campus environment. We all have a right to work in a place where we feel welcome, included, and appreciated. We also have a responsibility to do our part to create this type of environment for ourselves and others. But it’s not always easy. Attend the Workplace Diversity sessions to get information, ideas, and support in a safe, informative, and collegial environment.

Join us for this interactive session as we explore the concept of culture and how it plays out in our daily lives at Mizzou. Participants will engage in an interactive activity designed to develop awareness of how our deep seated values impact conflicts that we may have with our clients, colleagues, and students.
