LEARN ABOUT DIVERSITY
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.

This session will focus on introducing participants to the Green Dot Strategy of bystander intervention. A green dot is any behavior‚ choice‚ word‚ or attitude that promotes safety for everyone and communicates utter intolerance for rape, sexual assault, relationship violence, child abuse and stalking. A green dot is simply your individual choice at any given moment to make our campus safer. This interactive and engaging session is geared towards faculty & staff who want to do something to make our campus community safer for everyone. The last part of the session, presented by Noel English, will focus on what bystanders should do in terms of reporting and compliance issues related to sexual harassment and assault.
