The Forum on Workplace Inclusion

November 1, 2018 / By: Steve Humerickhouse and Amy Perez Ortiz, The Forum on Workplace Inclusion

The Forum on Workplace Inclusion® (The Forum) – a department of the University of St. Thomas Office of Diversity & Inclusion - puts St. Thomas’ diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) narrative into action through events and programs.

A part of the St. Thomas community since 1995, The Forum is eager to continue to strengthen the connection and service to the community by offering new ways to serve St. Thomas faculty.

The Forum is looking for opportunities to intersect with faculty members by:

  • Becoming influencers on Forum content
  • Participating in program committees (summer and fall)
  • Presenting at Forum events throughout the year
  • Contributing articles, opinion pieces, research, and white papers on The Forum website

With 20,000 people from around the world in The Forum’s database and consistent interaction with national and global organizations of all sizes, The Forum is the central hub for workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion.
