Diversity component for ADPs

Our university's long range Plan has an important component for Diversity and Inclusion. Each employee should have at least one Objective listed in Section One of their ADP Planning Form in support of our long range plan (effective January 2012). The following resources are provided to assist supervisors in establishing an Objective or Job Duty for their employees and facilitating a discussion on the importance of Diversity and Inclusion:

  • ADP diversity and inclusion guide (PDF) The objective or job duty listed in section one of the ADP should be within the scope of the employee's job during the rated year and be provided as part of the planning meeting.
  • ADP diversity and inclusion talking points (PDF) The discussion of the objective/job duty will also open a dialog between the employee and supervisor during which time the supervisor can relate to the employee the importance of Diversity and Inclusion for the success of the University‚Äôs Long Range Plan.
