Registration for the April 16 Diversity Retreat opens on March 12. To see the day’s schedule, please go to https://staff.libraries.psu.edu/diversity-retreat-advancing-conversation-inclusion.
For the morning program, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from discussions on rankism in the Libraries, bystander training on bias and discrimination, or a “Speak Up!” session, where you will work in groups to craft strong responses to acts of incivility. For something a little lighter, we’ll also host a speed networking session. This invariably fun social activity aims to develop social bonds among employees and is great whether you are new to the Libraries or have been here a long time.
After lunch we’ll have lightning talks presented by staff and faculty (we’ll send out more information on that in the coming weeks) and the LFO Colloquium. Please see the schedule for full details on the speakers.
Note: You don’t have to register for the Retreat if you only want to attend/view the afternoon program – just come to Foster Auditorium or view on MediaSite Live at:
