Share your voice in all-staff climate survey
Next week, the university will launch an all-staff climate survey to gauge diversity, equity and inclusion across campus. This is part of the campuswide five-year strategic plan that includes continual feedback and input from all employees.
Rob Sellers, the university’s chief diversity officer, views this survey as a way to hear from staff, helping leaders better understand key climate issues in the current environment.
“We are very hopeful we will get strong participation from all aspects of the university community,” Sellers said. “We’re constantly looking for ways to make U-M better for everyone, so hearing directly from the staff about what impacts them is the best way to determine what we’re doing well and how we need to improve upon the things we’re not doing so well.”
A third-party research firm, SoundRocket, will administer the survey, which will be open from March 28-April 18.
All staff will receive a unique link from SoundRocket with participation instructions. It will take only about 15 minutes to complete, and all responses will be strictly confidential.
Faculty and students will be invited to participate in a similar survey in the fall of 2017.
The survey results will be available in September and will provide unit-level data to help individual areas assess their DE&I plans.
All Michigan Medicine staff members are encouraged to take the survey to help reach the institutional goal of 75 percent or above participation. Be part of the many voices that make our Michigan by not missing your chance to complete the climate survey.
