This is an anonymous ideas box for members of the Entomology & Nematology department to make suggestions for changes in practices, policies, and procedures surrounding our departmental missions of research, teaching and extension. What would you like to see our department start doing, stop doing, or do more of to promote a more inclusive, diverse and equitable department community?
The DEI committee will discuss these anonymous submissions to find solutions to problems, integrate any suggestions provided, and look for opportunities for learning and growth in the department. Thanks for your participation in helping to improve our work environment.
There are established methods recommended by UF and IFAS HR for reporting instances of bias, discrimination, or harassment in the workplace and the classroom. The person who has been harmed may seek an informal resolution by speaking directly to their supervisor or, if their supervisor is the source of their complaint or concern, to their supervisor’s supervisor, with Dr. Siegfried being the ultimate departmental HR administrator. Students may wish to talk to the Undergraduate or Graduate Coordinator for guidance or go directly to Dr. Siegfried. If a within-department resolution is not possible, the harmed person should contact IFAS HR or the appropriate office listed below with a request to investigate the concern informally or formally. They are described here and here. There is also an option for anonymous reporting using a third-party client.
