The goal of this sub-committee is to send emails that inform members of our community about specific holidays or observances in the hopes to bringing our community closer together. By learning from each other about the practices and traditions that are important to members of our community we strive to celebrate the diversity of our department.
Since its inception, our committee has shared information on over 30 different holidays and celebrations. Members of our community have also shared pictures and personal reflections on their observances of these different events
Each of our postings is accompanied by links to other sources so that more information can be attained readily. When special months are celebrated, multiple postings are often made celebrating the lives of individuals who have contributed in a special way to the events being recognized during that time period.
Some recent posts are shared below.
