Leadership Guiding Principles:
- Equity, diversity, and inclusion needs to be threaded throughout all of our decision-making and actions as divisional leaders.
- Leading by example and setting expectations is part of our job, and in turn, the job of our sub-leaders.
- Equity, diversity, and inclusion is not something “external” that is “done” to people on campus. It is something internal - a light that guides all of us.
- There are resources to assist us, but we need to do the work. It isn’t about more training nor is it the job of the CDO or HR. It is about our leading change.
- We need to discuss, honor, and understand that this work is a heavy lift, yet we will be stronger for doing this.
