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, Postdoctoral Fellow in Diversity Education and Research, at goldsteinhodem@missouri.edu.

Note: In order to encourage free and open sharing of ideas and confidentiality of individuals participating in our sessions, we prohibit any recording, picture taking, and interviewing of any trainer or participant without prior permission. Permission will require full disclosure of publishing intent

According to the 'Freedom of the Press' Reporters Committee: "It is particularly important for bloggers and other online content providers to identify themselves and clearly state to the interviewees that the information they provide may be published or broadcast. That's because the general rule that people who talk to a reporter give implied consent for use of their names because they should anticipate publication does not apply if the people do not understand whom they are talking to and how their statements may be used.”
