Texas Christian University (TCU) has received the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) 2023 Inclusion Cultivates Excellence Award for the implementation of the R.I.S.E. (Responsible for Inclusion & Sustaining Excellence) Certificate program.
This award recognizes and celebrates institutional initiatives and programs that have made a significant impact with respect to inclusive and equitable workplace practices, particularly those that have brought about cultural change throughout the organization. Thanks to the generous support of EyeMed, CUPA-HR is pleased to offer a $5,000 contribution to the institution.
After identifying the chance to connect two initiatives of TCU’s 2019 strategic plan – strengthening the workforce and strengthening the TCU experience and culture – Ebony Rose, senior learning and development consultant for HR and Aisha Torrey-Sawyer, director of diversity and inclusion initiatives for the office of diversity and inclusion teamed up to create a learning opportunity for employees looking to advance their DEI skills and lead change on campus.
