The class modules and discussion with other participants made me more aware of how my actions and personal biases can get in the way of creating a inclusive environment. I am also more sensitive to the way others behave (towards me or other people) and can see how their own personal biases may lead the interaction to happen in that manner. Prior to the course, I thought if we have diversity, then it is all good. But now after the course, I realize that having diversity is good, but not good enough if we don't have inclusion in the equation. That is a big eye opener for me.
CoE Webinar Series: Outbreak Resources and How to Use Them
The Integrated Food Safety Centers of Excellence (CoEs) are pleased to announce an upcoming webinar series exploring the range of available CoE tools and services that may be useful for partners at all levels of foodborne outbreak response.
The 5-part webinar series will be held every other month beginning in September and will include presentations on a variety of CoE resources and expertise that may be of assistance to state and local jurisdictions.
In addition to showcasing some of the many resources the CoEs can provide, there will also be discussion of timely topics to help develop critical investigation skills. Audience interest on a number of alternative topics will be assessed during the first webinar to better tailor content to meet the needs of the audience as the webinar series continues. So be sure to tune in and vote!
