Webinar: Diversity in Dining the Binghamton Way

Placing students at the center of their educational experience, Binghamton University has created one of the most diverse Dining Services operations in the country. With twenty-six locations and strong student support, campus programs and constituencies who support the diverse food service options - and the dining experiences that support diverse populations - are the pride of Binghamton University. Join us as we discuss how our diversity is celebrated in our successes - and how we, like our student demographics, are constantly evolving as we are always looking for that next culinary voice.

Quarterly Womens’ Virtual Roundtable: Managing our Inner Voices

Join Kelsey Harmon Finn, NACAS CEO, as we discuss how our experiences influence our own inner voices and critics. While these voices can empower and elevate, they also can be sources of self-doubt and self-criticism during difficult times. We encourage you to share your strategies for positively adjusting your inner voice and reflect on times others have helped silence your inner demons. You’ll have a chance to participate in the discussion, ask questions, and help elevate your peers with the skillset you may have already developed!

Webinar: How to Empower Your Team to Achieve Zero Waste Events

Reducing, reusing, and recycling are all sustainability efforts to strive for but without having total institutional buy-in, it can seem like you're the one doing all the work! Come learn how ASU created a holistic Zero Waste Event checklist to empower staff at the university to practice sustainability in events that the Sustainability Department could not physically support. This allowed event planners to hold 'Green Events' without much handholding due to the checklists, resources, and increased cultural awareness that was created.
