CODRE Campus-Wide Listening Session: As a campus community how can we support the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion? 

Let’s Talk!! The Commission on Diversity and Racial Equity (CODRE) wants to hear from the UofL Campus Community! CODRE is hosting Campus-wide Listening Sessions to provide opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to engage in discussion on topics relevant to diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism.

How do flexible and remote work impact equity at UofL?
November 9, 2023, 12-1:30 p.m.
Location - MS Teams

Lack of flexible and remote work is the No. 2 reason (behind compensation) that employees in higher education leave their jobs. The availability of flexible and remote work options can be especially beneficial to those with disabilities, caregiving responsibilities, and more. How do these policies impact you, your department, and supervisor/supervisee relationships? How can we ensure that they are implemented equitably?

The Commission on Diversity and Racial Equity (CODRE) and the Commission on the Status of Women (COSW) will address this issue CODRE's next Campus-Wide listening session Thursday, Nov. 9, 12-1:30 p.m.

The listening session is free, but registration is required. Participants will receive a link to the session upon registration. All are welcome to attend!
