Staff groups review recommendations in report on diversity issues
Approximately 150 staff members gathered Thursday afternoon to discuss their thoughts and concerns about — and suggestions for achieving — recommendations in a staff committee report on diversity issues. The committee looked at hiring and retention, promotion and transfer, staff development and workplace climate.
After a brief introduction recapping the 22-member committee’s work over the past 10 months, the audience broke into groups of 8-10 people to discuss the report’s six recommendations, which grew out of subcommittees dealing with hiring and retention, promotion and transfer, staff development and workplace climate.
Then they again came together to hear summaries of some of those discussions.
