Greater Than 7: Courageous Conversation, Courageous Action
OCTOBER 5 - OCTOBER 11, 2015
About Greater Than 7
Equity and diversity is everybody's everyday work.
Every person is capable of making equity and diversity a core value in their life. We also know that it can be challenging to determine how and when you want to enter the conversation.
OED invites you to open up and continue the dialogue by participating in the second annual Greater Than 7, a week of events designed to engage our entire University community in the work of co-creating an environment where all can thrive.
The climate we live, learn and work in affects the way we communicate with others, our engagement in our work, and how we see ourselves as participants in the life of the U. October 5-October 11 is only 7 days, and we know that a week represents only the beginning of a multitude of conversations about equity and diversity and how they impact your life.
We envision the second annual Greater Than 7 week as a continuing invitation to engage; we want to provide our University community with multiple opportunities to ask critical questions like: How do we honor differences and nurture our common ground? How do we focus our attention on tackling the world’s grand challenges as we meet our own challenges at home?
We encourage university departments, colleges and student groups to pose these questions and others. Plan your own equity and diversity events* throughout the week of October 5 - October 11, and submit your event online.
Courageous conversation. Courageous action.
*You can plan new events, or include already-scheduled events in Greater Than 7.
