Conversation Series- Religious Diversity in the Workplace - Quiz
From _ Office of Equal Opportunity and Compliance Video Quiz  Created from Conversation Series- Religious Diversity in the Workplace
Supervisors, managers, and the campus community play a role in ensuring that all individuals, no matter their background, feel welcome and that no aspect of their identity will mean that they feel as though they aren’t included. The University strives to encourage an environment where employees bring their “full self” to work, where they feel comfortable, willing, and able to talk about what is most important to them. As such, the workplace can play a critical role in breaking barriers and encouraging increased intercultural understanding and communication.
The spring presents a wonderful opportunity for us to better understand the diverse faith perspectives represented in our U of A community.
