Workplace Diversity Series

Living our values of respect, responsibility, discovery, and excellence

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.

Questions? Contact Marlo Goldstein Hode, graduate coordinator of programming and professional development, at mbgnb9@mail.missouri.edu.

Noel English is the director of MU Equity for the Chancellor's Diversity Initiative. Noel has experience as director of affirmative action and coordinator of disability services in a higher education setting. Noel earned a law degree from Northwestern University, but nevertheless believes that a strictly legalistic approach is not necessarily the best way to help people who seek assistance. She remains optimistic that at an institution of higher learning people can learn to listen to one another. Contact Noel at EnglishNo@missouri.edu or 573-882-9069.
