Respect Sessions

How do we build civility and respect on campus?

Two sessions to be offered that consider why we should care about respect on campus and how respect affects our daily work.

February 23, 2015 — 

This March the University is offering two sessions that are targeted at obtaining the opinions and feedback of both academic faculty and support staff on campus.  These sessions will consider why we should care about respect on campus and how respect affects our daily work.

Researchers from the Universities of Manitoba and Calgary will discuss key findings related to the predictors and consequences of respect at work.  They will then provide an overview of the results from the campus-wide survey on workplace respect conducted last September; and the workshop will conclude with a facilitated discussion around how we can improve workplace respect at the U of M.

The sessions are scheduled as follows:

  • Academic faculty: Thursday, March 5, 2015 from 11:30am-1:30pm.
  • Support staff: Friday, March 6, 2015 from 12:00-1:30pm.

Both sessions will take place in the Senate Chambers on Fort Garry Campus and broadcasted live to Bannatyne Campus in room 535 BMSB.

If you enjoy the opportunity to bounce ideas off your colleagues, and are interested in participating in this engaging session, then please RSVP as soon as possible.  Participants will also be provided a light lunch in gratitude for their time and ideas.  RSVPs can be sent directly to Anitra Squires, Confidential Intake Officer, Office of Human Rights & Conflict Management.

Let’s work together in hopes of enhancing respect and civility on campus!
