IT Services: Honoring the Diversity in All of Us

IT Services employees in a classroom listening to Chen Zhao's presentation about MU Chinese students.

IT Services is one of the most diverse groups on campus. Our IT family includes members from different cultures, backgrounds, beliefs, and lifestyles. To that end, the IT Services Diversity Committee is a group of teammates dedicated to celebrating all of our fellow Miami University employees and the diverse cultures represented in our community.

Our goal is to raise awareness about workplace diversity and inclusion that builds respectful, productive relationships. Our mission is to foster a safe, respectful work environment to honor the diversity in all of us.

Our work is increasingly important in conjunction with the University’s efforts to strengthen our community through diversity and inclusion. We hope to make positive contributions in service to that goal. The group has been involved with the Presidents’ DEI Task Force and will be involved with the implementation of the task force’s recommendations.

Everyone is different - and we want to embrace that difference. Join us in celebrating the difference in all of us!

Upcoming Events

DEI in IT with Cisco’s Trey Boynton

We are happy to host Trey as she talks about the state of diversity and inclusion in the IT industry. She will tell us a little about the social justice work that Cisco is currently doing -- and where she thinks the rest of the IT industry needs to be in terms of diversity and inclusion.

Come with questions, comments, and ideas -- Trey will talk for 30 minutes and then will open it up for discussion.

When: Thursday, November 5, 2020 | 2 - 3 pm
