Career Development Passport Pilot wins 2014 CUPA-HR Midwest Regional Successful Practices Award

The Career Development Passport Pilot, a 12-month staff development initiative co-sponsored by the Women of Color Task Force, the Center for the Education of Women, the VOICES of the Staff Career Development Team and University Human Resources, has won the 2014 CUPA-HR Midwest Regional Successful Practices Award.

CUPA-HR, the Collegiate and University Professional Association for Human Resources, recently held its Midwest Regional Conference on May 4-6, 2014 in Kansas City, MO.  Jean Tennyson, the U-M diversity recruiter and team leader for Career Development Passport Pilot (CDPP), accepted the award on behalf of the University and the CDPP planning team.

Current CEW staff members Janice Reuben and Jacqueline Bowman along with former Senior Counselor Valerie Eaglin (retired) served on the CDDP planning team. The purpose of this staff development initiative was to empower U-M staff to take more responsibility for their career development aspirations. More than 550 employees from the Ann Arbor and Medical campuses participated in the Pilot.

A final CDPP-sponsored Speed Networking event will be held on Friday, May 23, 2014 from 2-4 pm at the North Campus Research Complex (NCRC). All U-M staff interested in attending this event may register by clicking on the following link.
