Career Quick Stop

submitted by tilton@augsburg.edu

Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3-4:30 p.m.

These drop-in hours are designed to expand access to career coaches and to accommodate impromptu student career questions as they arise. During Quick Stop hours students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis for brief, 15-minute drop-in appointments. These times are meant for quick career questions, brief resume or cover letter reviews, or help getting started with an internship or job search.

Quick Stop is not intended to replace longer appointments, and we regret we cannot accommodate career assessment requests during Quick Stop hours (please schedule an individual appointment: 612-330-1148).

Interfaith @ Cedar Commons: Celebrating Passover

submitted by freunds@augsburg.edu

This week we are celebrating the Passover, the Jewish festival of Freedom. Passover commemorates the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt and the story serves as a powerful metaphor for many kinds of liberation, with lots for all of us to reflect on.

Our speakers will be two guests from the JCRC. We will not have a full meal but we will have some Passover foods to enjoy!

Do you need to be a “person of faith” to come? Absolutely not. We welcome anyone with interest in conversation about how faith/spirituality shape our lives and intersect with the issues we care about.

This gathering is hosted by the Interfaith @ Cedar Commons organizer team and the Augsburg Interfaith Scholars.

Healing the Whole: Developing Care Models for Diverse Communities

submitted by lgeorge@augsburg.edu

Join Chris Farrell from MPR as he interviews Mary Brainerd, CEO of Health Partners, and Sara Theophilos, COO of People‰’s Center Health Services to discuss creating inclusive care models.

Leaders in every sector are understanding the need to recruit diverse teams in order to serve an increasingly diverse world. Health care, as a sector, is at the forefront of confronting this need and examining deeply embedded stereotypes both in historical context and social norms rooted in othering.

Health care leaders answering the call to provide care in a more equitable and just manner must educate professionals through a lens of wholeness and must consider new models of care.

To make such a sizable shift in practice and policy, health care leaders will need to consider a wide range of potential barriers. Consideration must be given to:

  • Reducing health disparities and inequalities in a rapidly diversifying world
  • Recruiting and retain a more diverse workforce
  • Having diversity of executives in the boardroom and leadership roles
  • Improving communities through vital outreach programs and community-based initiatives
  • Partnering with communities in meaningful ways to co-create sustainable means of change for identified health challenges
  • Working with external partners and resources to strengthen ecosystems
  • Reducing stereotypes that are embedded in policy, procedure and social norms
