Members of the UW-Green Bay community who participated in Friday’s (Feb. 12, 2021) Coffee Break, met Vice Chancellor for the Division of University Inclusivity and Student Affairs Corey King. King discussed the work of the entire campus community in regards to EDI (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion).
Earlier this week, King sent a letter to the campus community announcing a new website, #whyUWGB to increase and enhance the recruitment and retention of a diverse employee population. See the website with testimony from members of the UW-Green Bay community.
At Coffee Break, King suggested that all members of the campus community can take action to ensure a more inclusive and diverse community:
- Self-Reflection. Take the opportunity to learn about where you are in terms of diversity and inclusion. Participation in the UW-Green Bay Inclusive Excellence Program is a great resource for self-reflection.
- Learned Application. Once you go through self-reflection, find ways to apply what your learn into your professional and personal life.
- Continued Growth Opportunities: Place yourself in diverse environments which promote your own professional and personal growth toward inclusivity.
King welcomes conversation. You can reach him at email@example.com.
