Brown Bag Lunch with Dr. Hogan
February 16, 2017
One of the attendees gave a great description of the event and what she learned:
"The objective of this lunch was to engage in a conversation, and Dr. Hogan did a wonderful job connecting theory and research with actual real work. We were taught that diversity and inclusion are a collaborative initiative. We spoke on why diversity programs fail and the impact of implicit biases on diversity and inclusion. What really struck me the most, is when we discussed that as an adult, we have the ability to CHOOSE our core values. What hinders the community coming together to respect and honor the dignity of each person, the ability to embrace civil discourse, and foster a safe community is, sadly, a lack of knowledge, a lack of education, and that there is no shared interpretation of what respect really is. That is where the real work will come into play. Assertions can be true or false and civility are the rules of engagement in conversation. Knowing these statements is first step in the conscious awareness to RESPECT one another. Excellent discussion."
We look forward to hosting more events like this in the future to give staff the chance to converse with faculty about their research.
