Title: Creating an Inclusive Work Environment
Time: 12:30–1:30 p.m.
Location: Douglass 305 – Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center
Workshop Moderators: Jessica Guzman-Rea, Colleen Raimond

Is your environment inclusive? How do you know? During this conversation, we will work together to understand what makes a space inclusive – and start to think about how you can make changes today to make sure that you are helping others to truly feel welcomed and valued.

AS&E Reading Club

We are excited to announce the creation of the AS&E Reading Club! It is our hope to provide an opportunity for staff to engage with each other about professional development topics.

This new initiative will be hosted every other month. Your participation is voluntary and flexible, and you can attend as your schedule permits. Each session will begin at noon and staff are welcome to bring their lunch, and engage in thoughtful conversations with their peers. The discussion group will cover various media (books, articles, artwork, etc.) and topics based on staff interests.
