Registration for Staff Conference Now Open

Registration for this event is now open.

Valerie Eaglin, CEW Senior Counselor, and Janice Reuben, CEW’s Senior Associate for Programs and Outreach, joined forces with Jean Tennyson, Diversity Recruiter in UM Human Resources, and Janis Williamson, executive team member of the Women of Color Task Force, to successfully propose a career development conference for the University’s women and minority staff members.

The one-day conference will take place on June 27, 2011. The goals for the event are to help invited participants advance their UM careers by establishing goals, learning about available resources, and developing essential tools and core competencies.

The special topic for the conference will be “mentoring for career and personal development.” The intent is to encourage women and minority employees to consider jobs in areas where they are currently under-represented on the UM campus, including development, information technology, financial operations, student affairs, skilled trades, and medical affairs.
