Professional Development For Staff & Faculty

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace

Human Resources is committed to facilitating opportunities to come together as a community to enrich personal experiences and workplace culture. In support of this, Talent Development is proud to offer several new ways to engage in learning activities that promote important conversations around diversity and inclusion.

The HR Talent Development team partnered with AU Connects and AU Affinity Groups present the third season of the Speaker Series, Inclusive Storytelling. Over the next few months, four sessions focused on diversity and inclusion topics, including race, bias, gender, and orientation will be delivered with the goal of raising awareness and encouraging dialogue throughout campus.

In addition to the Speaker Series, the HR Talent Development team is offering professional development courses that are focused on strengthening the diversity and inclusion core competencies by building skills in awareness, self-exploration, and allyship. These courses are open to faculty and staff and currently span into Spring 2019.
