Remote Work: Making a Good Option Even Better

Harassment and Discrimination Prevention and Response During COVID-19:

"No single person or group of people are more likely than others to spread COVID-19...Stigma hurts everyone by creating more fear or anger toward ordinary people instead of focusing on the disease that is causing the problem. Stigma can also make people more likely to hide symptoms or illness, keep them from seeking health care immediately, and prevent individuals from adopting healthy behaviors. This means that stigma can make it more difficult to control the spread of an outbreak."
If you are a victim (or a witness) of harassment or discrimination for any reason, please contact Nora Boomer, Eric Roesler, or Sierra Thomas.

 Apply Your EDIB Knowledge and Skills

Attend or reattend a Safe Zone training to build, practice, and refresh your knowledge.

Participate in Project Implicit to identify and reflect on your biases.

Be an Ally. Allyship is an ongoing learning process in which someone works alongside a marginalized or oppressed group but is not a member of that group. It involves listening, educating oneself, checking one’s own privilege to better understand the struggles of marginalized people, and sharing those lessons with one’s own identity group. (Reference: The 5 Percent: Action Steps for Institutions Investing in Women of Color, by Ashley L. Gray, Jennifer R. Crandall, and Morgan Taylor, 2019).

Use Best Practices in your role.

Reference the Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (EDIB) Activity Ideas to support performance management and professional development.
