    Let’s break the record for women voting in the 2020 election! That’s the goal of Vision2020Votes, a nonpartisan, national, online voter mobilization effort. A record vote by women is the best way to increase the power of women’s voices in decisions that affect society — and to honor the suffragists who won the fight for women’s right to vote 100 years ago.

    A PSA highlighting the Vision2020Votes intiative can be viewed from the women100.org website.

    Incorporating just 10 minutes of healthy activity into your day can add up to a significant difference in your health, wellbeing and quality of life. With that in mind, Human Resources’ A Healthier U Program is encouraging you to participate in our daily “Ten at 10” wellness program for faculty and professional staff. During this era of social distancing, it’s more important than ever that we find ways to maintain meaningful connections to our colleagues. This program addresses that need and also encourages life-sustaining activities that will promote physical and emotional wellbeing.

    Supervisors and department heads are encouraged to set a recurring Outlook invite from 10-10:10 a.m., Monday through Friday, and invite their colleagues to participate. Include a link to this website, then check back Monday through Friday to complete the scheduled activity of the day. For larger departments, you might consider organizing activities into groups of 3-10.

    If 10 a.m. is a not an ideal time for you or your department, please feel free to tweak the time to meet your needs. We encourage you to participate sometime before lunch if possible, to help you set the tone for your day.

    Tuesdays are "Take-a-Hike Tuesdays." Visit the Ten at 10 Website to connect with resources that can help you take advantage of a simple but powerful body-mind reset. Please visit our website and click on "Take-a-Hike Tuesdays" to learn more.

In the Control Properties dialog box, enter parameters to define which Department or Category the sidebar should find events for, to specify where the event's detail page is, and to customize the sidebar's appearance or functionality.
