Forum for Inclusive Culture
The Forum for Inclusive Culture (“I-Forum”) is dedicated to ensuring that our University is welcoming to all members of our diverse community and that all members feel understood. This requires building a community characterized by cooperation, listening, and care, rather than hierarchy, inflexibility, and isolation. Our goal is to work together to develop and implement a cultural framework that will ensure we are caring for the physical, psychological, social, and moral wellness of all members of our microcommunities and the Drexel community at large, and that we are modeling norms that are compatible with the evolving ethics of work and social life.
On Friday, September 23, at 3:00 p.m., join the Forum for Inclusive Culture ("I-Forum") for our next meeting. This time, we will be discussing our reactions to current events. Although racism, homophobia, xenophobia, and misogyny are ever-present specters in our society, 2016 has been at times an unfathomably difficult year. In the aftermath, what are our needs as individuals and communities? What resources are available to us (e.g. the counseling center, the employee assistance program) and how can we encourage their use? How can we draw on the lessons from our previous two sessions about trauma and resiliency to inform our reactions as individuals, community members, leaders, and allies? Location to be announced. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with additional agenda items.
