We need to identify and appreciate cultural differences in order to function effectively in a multicultural environment. This seminar will define cultural awareness, address the unique psychological challenges associated with building cultural competence, and provide tools for adapting to today's changing cultural landscape. The theme of diversity will also be explored.

Recorded Webinar - Impact of Racism
The concept of racism can be hard to explore for some. For others, it is not a concept, but rather a daily reality that requires people of color to navigate the world differently in order to thrive or even just survive.
Recorded Webinar - Creating an Anti-Racist Organization
The concept of racism can be hard to explore for some. As the world witnesses the changing social response to systemic racism and the treatment of people of color, organizations are publicly calling out racism and offering plans to support reform moving forward. This call to action enhances an organization's reputation with current and prospective employees alike.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
The Wellesley College Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups that are supported by the College to provide our employees with professional and social networks.
Community Conversations focuses on core concepts, social identities (e.g. race, socio-economic class, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, etc.), and skills, such as leadership, cultural competence and action planning. We draw on outstanding subject matter experts, from Wellesley College and beyond, to deliver thought-provoking, skills driven presentations.
The goal of SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) is to create conversational communities that drive change and is open to faculty and staff.
Day to Make a Difference
Day to Make a Difference is a day for community service with a local community organization. We hope to offer additional opportunities throughout the year to volunteer and give back.
The Charitable Giving Campaign offers Wellesley College employees an opportunity to give monetarily to a variety of organizations. The Wellesley community has always given generously. Our goal each year is to increase the overall level of participation.
OPEN Wellesley (Onboarding Program for Employees New to Wellesley) is offered by Human Resources once a quarter to provide new employees with an introduction to the Wellesley community and to offices and resources that might be helpful throughout one’s career at the College. This new employee gathering offers an opportunity to meet and connect with other new employees to build community in a thoughtful and proactive manner. Please contact email@example.com for more information about the program.
