Diversity-Related Motivational Speakers for Non-Exempt Staff
Through the Diversity Showcase Border Crossing to Build Community Speaker Series, OHRP bring unique motivational speakers to campus whose message is particularly geared toward inspiring self-determination among non-exempt-level employees. Speakers will include international human rights activists, neighborhood organizers, and labor leaders, among others. Speaker presentations will be multilingual and incorporate the use of community theatre. For more information, please contact the Associate Director, firstname.lastname@example.org, or the Executive Director email@example.com
Non-Exempt Staff Resources Access Directory
In the effort to facilitate career path development for non-exempt staff members, OHRP is developing a Resources Access Directory. The Directory will chronicle the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSA’s) and contact information of non-exempt staff members who wish to serve as career path development mentors to their colleagues. Non-exempt staff members wishing to access or acquire KSA’s may, through the Directory, contact a colleague to mentor them in this endeavor.
In addition to on-campus-related KSA’s, the Directory will also afford any non-exempt staff member to showcase the vocations, avocations, and talents they possess for which they provide services in off-campus contexts. Any member of the campus community can, through the Directory, contact and contract with a non-exempt staff member to secure their services outside of the university work context.
For more information, to obtain a copy of the Directory, to become a career path development mentor, to find a career path development mentor for KSA’s not listed in the first Directory, or to have an off-campus vocation, avocation, or talent showcased in the next Directory, please contact the Assistant Director. The first Directory will be distributed in the Spring of 2002 and will be updated annually.
Non-Exempt Staff Appreciation Newsletter
Once a year, OHRP will be producing a Newsletter that highlights the integral and otherwise outstanding contributions that non-exempt staff members make toward furthering diversity efforts at Maryland. The Newsletter will feature a photograph and brief biography on the individuals recognized, and detail their diversity work on campus. OHRP will solicit nominations for individuals to highlight in the Newsletter each February, beginning in 2002. The first Newsletter will be distributed to the campus community May 2002.
For more information, to obtain a copy of the Newsletter, or to make a nomination, please contact the Assistant Director, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call him at 301.405.2840
