Diversity and Inclusion
The FCS Diversity and Inclusion Committee work to develop strategies to raise diversity awareness and support a culture of acceptance and inclusiveness within FCS. Our diversity committee is directed by the guidelines laid out in the campus document Toward New Destinations (TND) – Institutional Diversity Planning created by the University Diversity Council. Under this charter, Colleges and units have been challenged to promote a working culture of inclusion and embrace the elements of diversity within the workplace.
The FCS Diversity and Inclusion Committee are focused on the following three initiatives:
- Identify specific underrepresented job titles to develop and implement outreach plans with the intent to increase the diversity of applicant pools.
- Develop a diversity and inclusiveness training program that covers topics that are both relevant to our current culture, and are based on direct feedback from FCS staff.
- Explore opportunities within the surrounding counties and communities to promote Cornell careers within FCS and solicit Cornell FCS Staff volunteers who can engage with potential diverse candidates.
The FCS Diversity and Inclusion Committee are excited to hear your ideas! If you would like to learn more about each of these initiatives or be involved as they are implemented, please reach out to one of our committee members.
