The UNMC community is invited to explore the idea of trust during the Oct. 14 "Conversations for Inclusive Excellence."  

Sheritta Strong, MD, assistant vice chancellor of inclusion, will host the discussion, which runs from 2-3 p.m. and connects cultural humility concepts to UNMC’s ITEACH values of innovation, teamwork, excellence, accountability, courage and healing. 

Zoom links can be accessed via the campus calendar or via the Engage website. 

On Oct. 14, attendees will hear from Harvard Business School professor Frances Frei, PhD, as she gives a crash course in trust: how to build it, maintain it and rebuild it -- something she worked on during a recent stint at Uber. As a professor of technology and operations management at Harvard Business School, Dr. Frie’s research investigates how leaders create the conditions for organizations and individuals to thrive by designing for excellence in strategy, operations, and culture. Her presentation will relate to the ITEACH value of teamwork. 

Access the Zoom link for the Oct. 14 session via Engage.  

Sponsored by the UNMC Office of Inclusion, "Conversations for Inclusive Excellence" allow participants to engage in meaningful and, at times, uncomfortable conversations to co-create understanding. Participants also gain tools to continue the dialogue within their departments and offices. The sessions, which take place on the second Thursday of every month, challenge participants and the assumptions we all make consciously and unconsciously.
