The IPP Diversity Committee (IPPDC) works to develop strategies to raise diversity awareness and support a culture of acceptance and inclusiveness within IPP.

Our Direction - Our diversity committee is directed by the guidelines laid out in the campus document Toward New Destinations (TND) – Institutional Diversity Planning created by the University Diversity Council. Under this charter, Colleges and units have been challenged to promote a working culture of inclusion and embrace the elements of diversity within the workplace.

This year the IPPDC will be focusing on the following three initiatives:

1.    Identify specific underrepresented job titles to develop and implement outreach plans with the intent to increase diversity of applicant pools.  

2.    Develop a diversity and inclusiveness training program that covers topics that are both relevant to our current culture, and are based on direct feedback from IPP staff.

3.    Explore opportunities within the surrounding counties and communities to promote Cornell careers within IPP and solicit Cornell IPP Staff volunteers who can engage with potential diverse candidates.

The IPPDC is excited to hear your ideas! If you would like to learn more about each of these initiatives, or be involved as they are implemented, please reach out to one of our committee members.
