Culture of Health
There are many elements that contribute to a culture of health in the workplace; access to walking paths, ergonomic equipment, healthy food, quiet spaces,etc. Another area of focus is inter- and intrapersonal relationships. Understanding personal experiences, identities, and strengths, in addition to those of colleagues can be important to building a healthy work environment.
As 2020 brought diversity, equity, and social justice issues to the forefront, many opportunities became available for employees to learn more and engage in conversations around these topics. With more employee-friendly events hosted by Multicultural Student Life on the horizon, including the 35th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration on January 27th
and the Black Issues Conference on February 6th
, we would like to highlight an additional resource that departments can utilize at any time of the year to continue this work.
The Office of Equity and Diversity
can facilitate a series of workshops and trainings to promote diversity and intercultural development within departments. If your department is looking for a way to engage in this dialouge with an outside facilitator, fill out an Education and Training Request Form
on OED's website or email email@example.com for more information.
