University-wide Diversity Training

Dear Notre Dame Staff,

In his September 2015 Letter on Diversity and Inclusion, Fr. John outlined several initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion within our Notre Dame community. He asked each of us to “recommit ourselves to building a community of respect, love and mutual support” at Notre Dame.

In the spirit of meeting these commitments, University-wide training programs for all staff have been developed on the subject of diversity and inclusion at Notre Dame. We are pleased to announce additional offerings of these programs, listed below. All staff who have not already done so are asked to attend the appropriate program.

If you are a manager, please bring this to the attention of your staff and ask them to enroll in the appropriate training.

We Are All ND

For non-supervising staff. All staff not currently in a supervisory role are asked to attend We Are All ND, an interactive and engaging half-day workshop that encourages each of us to take ownership of our campus environment and do our part to build and maintain a culture of inclusion where all are welcomed.

Multicultural Competencies / Hiring Game Changers

For managers/supervisors. All managers and supervisors of staff are asked to attend Multicultural Competencies / Hiring Game Changers. The first session of this day-and-a-half workshop will define the University’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan, explain multicultural competencies and discuss their benefits to Notre Dame. The second session will help you identify and hire “game changers” — top talent motivated to move your organization forward.


Upcoming session dates/times are listed below. Please note that additional dates will be added to the calendar once the below classes are filled. Sessions fill quickly, so please register in eNDeavor to secure your preferred session. Please work with your manager to ensure that your normal work schedule permits the training offering you choose.
