Green, Barker continue diversity, inclusion conversation series

The Association of Students of the University of Nebraska and the Black Student Union will co-host a Women of Color in STEM panel, 6 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12. Presented via Zoom, the panel is part of a series of racial equity and inclusion events.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s CEO Action Conversation series continues Dec. 17 with a discussion between Chancellor Ronnie Green and Marco Barker, vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion.

Taking place virtually from noon to 1 p.m., the CEO Action Community Conversation is a forum for university employees to share questions, concerns, ideas, resources and actions centered on promoting equity and inclusion throughout the Husker community. All faculty and staff are welcome to participate. Click here to register and submit questions.

The series is an extension of the university’s continued participation in CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion, the largest CEO- and president-driven initiative of its kind in the United States. The initiative calls for a specific set of actions that participating organizations will take to cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcome and employees feel empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion.

Green signed the CEO Action commitment in 2018, marking the University of Nebraska–Lincoln as the first institution of higher learning in the state to join the movement.
