The “Check In. Speak Up. Show Up.” event is an opportunity for staff employees to share ideas on how the university can foster an inclusive workplace. Participants will also be able to take the “I Act On” pledge, which a personal commitment to help drive inclusive behavior in everyday life.

The pledge is part of CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion, the largest chief executive officer-drive commitment in the United States. It is designed to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The movement includes a pledge that administrators can sign, signifying that their organization/company is dedicated to creating a workplace environment where diversity and inclusion are valued.

Green signed the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion pledge in 2018.
