Four campuses, thousands of employees, and a big vision: creating the University of Miami (UM) as a workplace where all members feel engaged, connected, and appreciated.
Recognizing that dialogue and education on gender and orientation is critical to that mission, all UM Human Resources managers recently participated in a YES Institute educational dialogue. Participants shared:
“Before today I felt only confusion or frustration towards gay and transgender people. Now I feel compassion.”
“I will speak up the next time I see someone being marginalized.”
“I would like to take proactive steps—discussed today—that HR can take to ensure all employees feel safe and included.”
Thank you, UM, for working to build a workplace culture that fosters true community. We look forward to supporting you further to realize your vision!
