Working together to ensure an inclusive and positive environment for all.
Goal 3 of our ReIT Strategic Plan focuses on creating a diverse and inclusive community of IT professionals who are trusted and strategic partners with the campus, alumni, and the public. In July 2018, we held a series of workshops with campus IT professionals to explore the issues of diversity, inclusion, and equity within the campus IT community. Work to analyze and theme the feedback gathered at these workshops was done by an amazing Superhero team, who subsequently identified a set of projects to address a variety of issues. We are currently in the process of executing on these projects.
In June 2019, the theme of our annual IT Summit was Diversity and Inclusion for One IT. All programming was organized around various D&I themes and presenters throughout the day addressed topics of importance to the greater One IT community. Our ability to make more progress on this goal will depend on resources to do this work, primarily a dedicated staff member who can lead these efforts.
Here is a timeline of the advances we have made in our D&I efforts:
