Huddle Summary

The Commission is excited to share the action steps created by the attendees at our Huddle on February 14! We talked about how to make UMD a better place for those who identify as women on our campus, and we came into community to support and encourage each other.

Please share this document at will, and if you have other suggestions for action, let us know!

Gender Equity Advocacy Events – February 2017

New Program – Coffee Connection


The Commission for Women is excited to announce our newest initiative to build community on campus!

The Coffee Connection program pairs non-gender binary and those who identify as women with others on campus to facilitate personal and professional growth.

Participants will be matched with four individuals with whom to connect over the course of Spring semester. Create new relationships, deepen existing ones, and foster community; enjoy each other’s company while enjoying a coffee, a meal, or just a few minutes away from your work.

To participate, fill out the quick and easy form at z.umn.edu/coffeeconnection. Pairs will be announced in late January.

This program is open only to individuals who work on the UMD campus.
