Mary Laurel True Farewell; May 6, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Zoom

submitted by peacock@augsburg.edu

After more than 30 years of dedicated service to Augsburg and our surrounding communities, Mary Laurel True has moved on to a new position with the Community Action Center of Northfield. Her passion and talent for connecting campus and community in so many meaningful, creative ways will be greatly missed.

The original plan was to gather outdoors for a send-off in true Mary Laurel style, but the large number of people who want to celebrate Mary Laurel has led to shifting to a virtual event due to COVID restrictions. So, on Thursday, May 6th from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM we will honor Mary Laurel in a virtual celebration on Zoom. There will be an opportunity for folks to share stories, expressions of gratitude, and best wishes. Please join friends and colleagues to celebrate all that Mary Laurel has meant to Augsburg and our neighbors!

Tomorrow, Forum Event – Religion in the Workplace: Interfaith Skills to Engage Difference

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: May 6, 2021 11:00 am – 12:30 pm CST
Where: Online/Video Conference
Cost: $30 Suggested Donation
Level: Intermediate
Track: Critical Employment Practices
Presenters: Megan Hughes Johnson, Interfaith Youth Core  |  Jenan Mohajir, Interfaith Youth Core

Religious diversity is an incredibly important part of American public life. Controversies regarding religion and business are regularly in both the press and the courts and more Americans say that they encounter religious diversity at work than in any other sphere of their life (PRRI, 2019). However, religion is often left out of the corporate diversity conversation. Diverse identities and perspectives on a team can lead to greater outcomes or can lead to misunderstanding and conflict. It is only when diverse identities are engaged, and team members have opportunities to intentionally learn about one another, that the potential strength of workplace diversity is unlocked. Developing a company culture that proactively engages religious diversity can open doors to greater employee productivity, enhanced client satisfaction, and even new business prospects. Join IFYC to explore why engaging religion matters in the workplace, workshop challenging scenarios, and identify your interfaith skillset.

Learning Outcomes
Learn why engaging religious diversity matters in the workplace

Identify concrete skills to engage religious diversity and enhance workplace culture
