I would like to see more training and commitment to building a more inclusive campus community. Staff as well as students should be provided continuing training and development in the area of multicultural competencies. Several incidents have been occurring around the country and even this campus that cause me pause.
Speak up Be heard: Professional development
Inclusion/inclusivity training needed
All employees (faculty, staff, and student employees) are required to complete an online Preventing Harassment and Discrimination training as part of their onboarding process. This training is available in Career Edge and can be accessed at any time. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has developed and facilitates a variety of training opportunities related to diversity and inclusion initiates. You may contact the office to learn more about available training programs, or to schedule a training for your department.
On September 2, 2020, President Crow affirmed a commitment to providing training on bias and inclusion. Several departments across the university are working on implementing training programs of this nature campus-wide.
Professional Development at West campus
I would love to have more professional development workshops at West, including HR type classes, sales force, and IT training for various software.
Professional development classes and workshops are currently available via Zoom and Career EDGE and LinkedIn Learning greatly expanding access to individuals at all campus locations.
Lunch & Learn Series options at other campuses
There are so many interesting things offered, that would be wonderful to participate in. I think Lunch and Learns are great. The topics I see published look great. However, I am located at the Thunderbird campus. Would there be opportunities to have the Lunch and Learns at our campus too? Or, if possible, let us join by SKYPE or at least listen by phone?
We are pleased to announce the Staff Council's Lunch & Learn Series for 2016-17 will be webcast with Adobe Connect and recorded for future viewing by employees at all campuses!
We are still working on the topics for 2016-17, but the series will be held the 3rd Tuesday of every month at noon in CPCOM 120 on the Tempe campus beginning Tuesday, August 16th. To join the webcast: https://connect.asu.edu/sc/
Each session will be recorded for later viewing, and will be available on the Lunch & Learn page on our Staff Council website.
Yearly "TED Talk" events?
Would it be possible to have a yearly "TED Talk" event where colleges could speak about their ongoing research to offer cross-college collaboration forums which might be archived in learning libraries for continuing conversation?
