Moving Diversity Forward – Professional Development for Employees

Diversity is one of the touchstones of Northwest Vista College. But the last few years have revealed that organizations have to go beyond surface-level diversity and actively embrace equity and inclusion to better serve students and their community,

To help crack the surface, the NVC Black Lives Matter-Association and the Collaborative for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Social Justices have partnered to put on monthly Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) professional development workshops. Employees are encouraged to set time aside from work duties to attend and also can get credit in Alamo Talent for participating.

So far, about 700 employees have attended the six sessions. The next one is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 11 at 9:30 am via Zoom. The topics will focus on NVC’s mission and strategy and community agreements/expectations for the classroom and workplace. To register for the event, go to the calendar in Alamo Talent or click on the Zoom link Friday morning.

Below are the previous workshops.
