Forum Webinar: Why the Workplace is the Perfect Place to Discuss the Undiscussables, Race and Racism

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: June 16, 2022 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CT
Level: Intermediate
Presenters: Margaret Greenberg, The Business of Race, LLC  |  Gina Greenlee, The Business of Race, LLC
Cost: Free
Registration: https://forumworkplaceinclusion.org/webinars/what-is-your-x-why-the-workplace-is-the-perfect-place-to-discuss-the-undiscussables-race-racism/

Talking about race and racism at work historically has been taboo. However, we can’t solve what we don’t talk about. It’s time for a new approach.
For nearly 60 years, workplaces have focused on diversity specific to gender and many historically underrepresented groups. Much of that focus has been on education, training, and awareness building at the individual level. What organizations haven’t devoted equal attention to is RACIAL diversity and how to change the SYSTEM of work—business policies and practices—to create and sustain a racially diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace.
While no single societal sector can disrupt the status quo on its own, innovative businesses and courageous leaders can lead the way. No matter your racial identity, no matter your role or level in your organization, you can do SOMETHING. We don’t profess to know what that “something” is for you but in this session, you will learn two actionable tools to uncover it.

Learning Outcomes
Explore racial diversity through both an asset and business lens
Create a business case for racial diversity that will engage your multiple stakeholder groups
Facilitate strategy sessions using the SOAR (strengths, opportunities, aspirations, + results) framework

Forum PDL – Purpose and Belonging: Two Key Ingredients for an Inclusive Culture

Unlike traditional workshop sessions, Professional Development Labs (PDLs) are goal-oriented and include personal and professional action and accountability planning for next level leadership.

Join the Unity Lab team to learn how to activate purpose, belonging and inclusion on your teams, and effectively lead diverse teams. In this interactive session, you will understand how activating purpose and belonging in the workplace builds an inclusive and inspiring culture – full of authentic, high trust, diverse relationships across an organization. To create truly inclusive and diverse workplaces, we must first create opportunities for employees to activate their purpose and build empathy and trust with each other.

You’re Invited! Judge Debates & Network with Students on May 21st!

The MN Urban Debate League is looking for financial professionals that identify as female or gender non-conforming to judge at our annual Financial Literacy Debate tournament this year!

Over the course of the initiative, students meet with their coach after school, learn about the topic area and fundamental economic concepts through an engaging curriculum, hold practice debates, and participate in a competition with other schools.

Our tournament this year is tentatively scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 21 from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm at Augsburg University. The tournament schedule will be as follows:

· 9:30 am: Judge training

· 10:00 am: Judge three debate rounds about the benefits/harms of cryptocurrency

· 1:00: Lunch and networking between students and financial professionals

· 2:00: Awards Ceremony

During the June 9, 2020, town hall for faculty and staff, President Pribbenow announced seven new equity initiatives born out of response to the murder of George Floyd and Augsburg’s renewed commitment to accelerate and expand upon our university’s efforts to promote equity and inclusion during a national moment of racial and social justice reawakening. One of these initiatives was the requirement of Augsburg faculty and staff to complete an annual anti-racism training.

If you haven’t already attended the Augsburg University Annual Anti-Racism that took place this past fall or spring semester, you need to attend the make-up training taking place this Thursday, May 12 at 2:30–6:00 p.m. via Zoom.

Where Will Your Mail Go?

submitted by longj@augsburg.edu

As we near the end of another year please don’t forget to take care of your campus mailbox. This includes checking it for any mail, returning your lock and filing out the survey for what you would like us to do with your mail after this semester.

Two weeks after the spring semester ends (May 16, 2022) we will be closing all student campus boxes. Then before the fall semester starts we will reassign them (possible new numbers) to all students living on campus. Commuter students can then request to have a campus box if they would like one.

If you would like your mail forwarded or would like to keep your mailbox open for the summer, please either fill out this survey (https://forms.gle/872EQGhwK1tCWiPB6) or send us an email (mailship@augsburg.edu) with any relevant information. There is also an option to be reassigned your current campus box number for the next semester if you will be returning in the fall.

We are only able to forward 1st Class USPS mail and packages. Other packages (UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc.), magazines, non-profit mail and standard mail will not be forwarded. We can also only forward to USA addresses. The forwarding period for the Augsburg Mailroom is two months from when the request is submitted. Afterward any additional mail we receive will be returned to sender.

We request that you contact the people/business sending you mail and update your address with them. Enrolling in online/electronic bills or statements can also be a smart option. It is environmentally friendly, secure and will often save you time (and sometimes money). Asking us to forward your mail does not change your mailing address with the post office or the University, just the Mailroom.

Over the course of the initiative, students meet with their coach after school, learn about the topic area and fundamental economic concepts through an engaging curriculum, hold practice debates, and participate in a competition with other schools.

Our tournament this year is tentatively scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 21 from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm at Augsburg University. The tournament schedule will be as follows:

· 9:30 am: Judge training

· 10:00 am: Judge three debate rounds about the benefits/harms of cryptocurrency
