The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement (ODECE) is kicking off a new event series this fall semester, Inclusive Workplace Community of Practice, on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
The first session will feature guest presenter Katelin Holloway, head of talent at Reddit. She will focus on the policies, strategies and lessons learned while implementing inclusive workplace practices. Currently, Holloway is transforming the Reddit culture with parenthood initiatives and practices, an example that will provide thought leadership and ideas to our own community.
Holloway will give a brief presentation followed by an interactive session, lasting an hour and a half in total.
Making Excellence Inclusive in the workplace
ODECE began the university-wide initiative Making Excellence Inclusive with a focus on inclusive pedagogy—how professors can make their classrooms more inclusive.
This year, ODECE will focus its efforts on employees and student-workers and making the university a more inclusive workplace. The focus is not only on race and ethnicity but also on a wide variety of other diversity and identity factors that may contribute to a need for more inclusive practices in the workplace.
