The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is partnering with the 100-Day Workout Diversity and Respect team to help make UMMC a more inclusive workplace. To date, projects include Coffee Talks and Word of the Month.
Each month, there will be a meaningful, positive word posted around campus, underscoring UMMC’s values. The “Word of the Month” is a visual reminder of the institution’s standards when it comes to the promotion of a respectful and inclusive environment. Words are posted in the elevators and bulletin boards around campus. Managers are encouraged to post the word in their departments or units and to use the word as a “talking point” to stimulate dialogue with employees.
