All-college diversity forum yields valuable feedback

Around 85 members of the CALS community participated in the all-college forum on diversity and inclusion, held on Feb. 2 in Upper Carson Gulley.

The event, which included small-group discussion time, yielded a large amount of valuable feedback, which has been organized, assessed and summarized by the CALS Equity and Diversity Committee (EDC). Please download the EDC’s diversity forum one-page summary.

The feedback will help guide college and EDC efforts to make the CALS climate the best it can be, for instance, by informing decisions about future events, workshops and other activities.

For those who want to be kept in the loop about all CALS diversity and inclusion-related events and activities, a new listserv is being created to share information about diversity and inclusion-related events and activities at CALS.
