Kent State University’s Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion invites Kent State faculty and staff to its fall reception on Monday, Sept. 9, from 3:30-5 p.m. at the Kent Student Center Ballroom Balcony.
The reception will mark the official launch of the division’s five-year strategic Equity Action Plan, “Charting Our Future.” Copies of the plan will be available for senior leadership in attendance. The reception also gives members of the university community the opportunity to learn about the division’s initiatives for the academic year, and also get introduced to staff of the division, including newly hired staff members.
“Our Equity Action Plan, the first of its kind at Kent State, is designed to promote fairness and inclusive values for all members of the Kent State community, and more specifically, to increase opportunities for underrepresented and underserved groups,” says Alfreda Brown, Ed.D., vice president for diversity, equity and inclusion at Kent State. “The plan impacts all Kent State colleges and divisions, including students, faculty, staff, administration and alumni, so we invite you to join us on Sept. 9 as we formally launch and share details of the plan.”
The reception will feature light refreshments and appetizers with informational folders provided.
For more information about the fall reception, contact Dana Lawless-Andric, executive director for diversity and inclusion, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 330-672-1980.
