HR Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The HR Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee was established in May 2020. HR employees had an opportunity to express their interest in the committee through self-nomination which led to a 20-member committee being formed. Current DEI committee chair includes Brian Ford, Senior HR Business Partner. John Kosky, VP & CHRO is the HR DEI Executive Sponsor.
Our Mission: In partnership with UVA's Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), and the Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights (EOCR), the HR DEI Committee promotes awareness of and respect for diversity among UVA staff and faculty; advocates for inclusion and inclusive practices and policies; and ensures equity in human resources programs and processes.
December is International Humanitarian Month
International Humanitarian Month aims to inspire global appreciation for the efforts of the humanitarian community that mobilizes, every day, to meet the unprecedented challenges facing our world.
Most people on the front lines of humanitarian crises come from affected communities, joined by local and national authorities, civil society organizations, faith-based groups, businesses and many more offering their time and skills to help their neighbors.
Look for inspiring Listen and Learn sessions this month that discover local humanitarian heroes and the work they do every day.
