Staff Engagement


ODEI recognizes that staff make up such a critical infrastructure to the effective and harmonious functioning of our School. To that end, we’ve launched some staff programming and learning opportunities that we hope connect staff and offer us all an chance to continue growing our DEI capacities!

Upcoming Opportunities:

ODEI Fall Staff Social: Wednesday, Sept
Join us for our inaugural bi-annual staff program to create connections amongst staff who identify across the intersectional spectrum of affinities and majority allies. Come out, meet new colleagues, catch up with familiar faces, and learn about how to engage with ODEI’s programming! The goal is for faculty and staff to feel welcome, foster belonging and be re-energized at the start of each semester! Register for the fall staff social event. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions.

DEI Collective Learning Series
This fall’s DEI Collective Learning Series will focus on equity-minded approaches to mentoring, the impact of implicit bias, and LGBTQ+ awareness and advocacy. Each month will have the trademark structure of a weekly action (Read, Watch/Listen, Write), and the month’s series will end with an Engage Session, held in-person in Bavaro Hall. Join us as we continue to grow our knowledge and capacities towards a more inclusive community. Learn more about the DEI Collective Learning series!
