In a continued effort to highlight areas within the university that have demonstrated outstanding leadership and support of inclusion and equity, this edition of Inclusion Extra! pays tribute to the work of the Finance and Administration Division. In the fall of 2011, the Finance and Administration Inclusion and Equity Committee was formed. The vision of this committee is to provide the Finance and Administration Division with an open and welcoming environment with the expectation that all dimensions of diversity are embraced, and equality is intentionally practiced.
The committee consists of eleven members representing each department within the Division. They focus on increasing intercultural competency and awareness throughout the Division and they strive to make inclusion and equity a priority. A website has been developed which includes diversity related readings and resources for programming and increasing intercultural awareness. The Division also hosts forums which include presentations around inclusion and equity.
At the next spring forum, the committee will recognize an individual who has exemplified the vision of the Finance and Administration Division. A survey will also be developed to assess the intercultural competency of the Division’s staff and to assess how they can better promote inclusion and equity.
