The Wisconsin Union has a dedicated Council to address ongoing engagement, inclusion and diversity (E.I.D.) efforts.
EID plays an essential role in our day-to-day practice. This remains true as our communities and country grapple with the consequences of police brutality, white supremacy, and systemic racism, all in the wake of a pandemic. Please remember to center EID and our EID principles as we work through our campus response and communications around our response, what the impact our response and these realities have on employees, who’s most impacted, who needs additional support, who might be overlooked, how do we best meet these needs, etc.
Please continue to take good care and check-in with each other, your loved ones, your friends and colleagues.
