2019 New Hire Diversity Luncheon
The Office of Faculty and Graduate Student Retention, Success and Inclusion, in collaboration with Human Resources, will host the annual New Hire Diversity Luncheon on November 6, 2019. The luncheon will welcome and honor new diverse faculty and staff hires from all Kent State campuses. The luncheon is an opportunity for attendees to network and meet other new diverse hires as well as receive valuable resources to help them be successful at Kent State University.
The luncheon will feature remarks by esteemed speakers Alfreda Brown, Ed.D., Vice President, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Manfred Van Dulmen, Ph.D., Professor and Interim Associate Provost for Academic Affairs, and Jack Witt, MBA, J.D., Vice President, Human Resources.
A special highlight of the event will be three guest speakers who are seasoned employees at Kent State. These speakers will include one faculty member, one classified employee, and one unclassified employee. Each guest speaker will provide tools on how to be successful at Kent State from their individual perspectives.
In addition to the speakers, there will be resource tables at the event containing a variety of informational handouts. Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) will also be in attendance. For more information, or to join an ERG please visit www.kent.edu/hr/employee-resource-groups.
