Forum for Inclusive Culture
The Forum for Inclusive Culture (“I-Forum”) is dedicated to ensuring that our University is welcoming to all members of our diverse community and that all members feel understood. This requires building a community characterized by cooperation, listening, and care, rather than hierarchy, inflexibility, and isolation. Our goal is to work together to develop and implement a cultural framework that will ensure we are caring for the physical, psychological, social, and moral wellness of all members of our microcommunities and the Drexel community at large, and that we are modeling norms that are compatible with the evolving ethics of work and social life.
The next meeting of the I-Forum will be held on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 and will feature guest speaker Dr. Sandra Bloom, Associate Professor of Health Management and Policy and Co-Director of the Center for Nonviolence and Social Justice in the Dornsife School of Public Health. Dr. Bloom will share with us her knowledge and experience developing a framework for building and maintaining an adversity-informed, resiliency-affirming institutional culture, and her specific work implementing the principles of the Sanctuary Model of organizational behavior. We will also discuss ways that we can utilize these principles in our work building a welcoming and caring university community at Drexel.
The May 3 I-Forum meeting will be held in the:
Sky View Room of MacAlister Hall
12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Please RSVP, as space is limited.
