Leigh-Anne Royster, Director of Inclusive Community Well-Being, in collaboration with our office, continues to sponsor Inclusive programming for Supervisors. “Jan Fuller, University Chaplain, will facilitate this month’s program. “As a supervisor, you may not even know the diverse spiritual or religious backgrounds of your staffs. But it bears remembering that—chances are very good— you are working with people of widely different thinking about anything religious or spiritual. How can you invite conversation that builds up your team even when they may come from different perspectives? How can you understand and support your staff from their religious points of view? In this session we will think together about religious diversity in the workplace, as it affects time off, the rhythms of the day, holidays and holy days, and commitments that come to bear in the workplace. You will leave the session with greater knowledge to interact around issues of religious/secular commitments, and to see these differences as strengthening your team and our shared workplace.” A buffet lunch will be served for those who register.
Monday, May 4 from 12:00-1:30p.m., Oaks 212
In this third lunch-and- learn seminar of the Supervisor Series, we will cover the basics of becoming a "leader coach" and also the how to be an effective team leader.
We will explore how supervisors can create coaching relationships with their direct reports that facilitate their best professional development, as well as what to do when coaching isn't working. The workshop will provide best practices along with tools and tips for coaching and team-leading. A buffet lunch will be served for those who register.

The Diversity Course Database is now available for use!
The Diversity Course Database represents an initiative created in response to requests by faculty, staff and students for a resource to identify diversity-related courses. Unlike a list, this searchable database identifies diversity-related courses by content and student learning outcomes using seven dimensions of diversity: race, class, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ability and the global.
The Database will be a valuable resource for advising. It can also help departments and schools with curricular and diversity planning. It can be accessed using the following link: http://www.elon.edu/e-web/administration/president/strategicplan2020/diversity/diversityCD.xhtml.
Currently the Database represents the initial seeding of courses. Departments will have an opportunity to add more courses annually and will receive information about that process at a later date. If you have questions about the database, please direct them to Brooke Barnett: email@example.com.
The Database was developed by Crystal Anderson, Academic Diversity Fellow, and JP Lavoie, whose technical expertise was indispensible in the creation of the database. Many thanks also go out to participating chairs of departments in the College of the Arts and Sciences as well as the Deans of the School of Communications, Martha and Spencer Love School of Business and the School of Education.
