Chris, I think they're saving questions for later, but if we don't get to your's, I can talk to you about it. We did a lot, including going back to the person.

Wes Wood

Seems the UF should develop mandatory training on D&I like we have for sexual harassment, which I think is very effective.
Chris Vivian
48:56
Agreed - it is a basic platform.
Gulcan Onel
50:06
Are there any new policies/practices adopted/proposed by an IDEA Committee to increase diversity of admitted students and/or hired new faculty & staff ?

Anita Neal
59:05
Did you go through a process/procedure of understanding each person's bias prior to focusing on a goal/project ? Is this part of the template you mentioned?
Chris Vivian
59:29
You know Denise, maybe my PR people can help with some targeting, too.
Dana LeCuyer
59:47
That would be fantastic!
Chris Vivian
01:00:10
@Anita - we would like to do an IDI for all staff prior to starting. I don't want to bake bias into our efforts.
AJ Reisinger
01:07:11
Specific goals pulled from the recent SWSD JEDI committee proposal:1. Develop mission statement for the committee and a JEDI statement for the department2. Review the state of JEDI within the department by surveying undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral associates, staff, and faculty.3. Coordinate annual workshops focused on JEDI issues, such as by-stander intervention training, allyship, implicit bias, etc.4. Develop specific, targeted, materials to recruit URM individuals at every level (undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral, staff, faculty)5. Decolonize and diversify the teaching, research and extension programs through intentional, anti-racist activities and approaches. For example, ensure that courses with heavy primary literature foci are including black authors and authors from the global south.6. Increase the diversity of invited speakers for departmental seminars.
Heather McAuslane

from Entomologu 1) Develop strategies for dialogue, training, and promoting diversity and inclusion within the department.2) Provide training opportunities or resources to new members of the Entomology & Nematology Department standing and ad hoc committees to encourage their adherence to the principles of equity and inclusion described in the bylaws.3) Request and review annual action plans from each standing and ad hoc committee to increase their inclusivity.4) Assist/participate with the recruitment, retention and support of students, staff and faculty of underrepresented groups in the Entomology and Nematology Department.5) Discuss matters within the department relating to racism, bias, and discrimination against students, staff and faculty, received from the anonymous Qualtrics reporting system and by individual committee members.
Gulcan Onel
01:11:17
I think being mindful about forming search and screen committees is also important ( i.e., Intentionally diversifying those decision-making committees) .
Laura Valencia
01:11:24
barriers
Laura Valencia
01:12:00
will be immediate changes based on the goals of those DEI committees
Chris Vivian
01:13:38
I We are talking about how to get started and would like to combine with another department or two to better understand their needs and help with consistency and broaden discussion.
Heather McAuslane
01:14:34
combining forces in similar departments might be a good way to reduce resources and effort.
Chris Vivian
01:15:04
That's a helpful explanation, Denise.
Kimberly Moore
01:17:02
I find that being a part of the REC DEI committee has helped me with the FLREC DEI committee. They build on each other. And what we found was that all the RECs are different. So we share as a group and take it back to our centers to fine tune.
AJ Reisinger
01:25:42
I'd love to see what you're using Heather!
Gulcan Onel
01:26:36
Improving DEI is a long-run process. We should just expect to be feel frustrated and defeated at times. Cultural shifts take time and struggle.
Wes Wood
01:26:43
The WFREC is in the same position as TREC. This topic is on the agenda for next week’s WFREC faculty meeting.
Kimberly Moore
01:27:15
The REC DEI committee is modifying there entomology climate survey.
