Managing Diversity: Success Stories
The Managing Diversity: Success Stories Recognition Program provided a vehicle to collect and widely disseminate information about successful workplace practices in the areas of equal employment opportunity (fairness), affirmative action (representation), and diversity (inclusiveness). Nominated departments who met the selection criteria—focused around a particular theme each year—received recognition, and their success stories were shared with the entire campus community in a variety of venues.
This was not an awards program. Departments did not compete against each other for a prize. Rather, it was a program that acknowledged and gave attention and favorable notice to all departments in some way for their good faith efforts. For those departments who met all of the program's selection criteria, the acknowledgement included having their success stories showcased in a number of venues to share this information with the campus community. Departments who did not meet all of the criteria were acknowledged and given feedback and encouragement to continue the good faith efforts they had started.
Please consider trying out some of these practices in your own departments. Notify Staff EEO Compliance about any practices that you are able to adapt in your departments. Tapping into the existing campus knowledge and expertise and sharing these successful practices helps the campus attain greater organizational effectiveness.
