If you have ideas for how the Employee Forum can help support you in these challenging times, please email Annie Steve (steveam@lemoyne.edu) or Jennifer Reddy (reddyjc@lemoyne.edu.) Ideas could include creating and supporting chat groups dedicated to specific topics, facilitating IT training, and anything else appropriate you can think of.

The Employee Forum Executive Board has heard you!

 

Over the last several months, the Employee Forum has had the opportunity to attend and listen to the feedback from the Climate Survey for staff and administrators. In addition, the Forum has met with the Racial Justice Committee Co-Chairs and the Leadership Team. Based on these conversations and feedback, the Employee Forum is examining and re-imagining our role in the campus community. While COVID-19 has proven challenging to our community and the way the Employee Forum operates, we are committed to reconvening as a group to deepen our involvement with the community. We intend to move forward as a group that represents and advocates the needs of Le Moyne College’s staff and administrators. With this in mind, we are taking the following steps:

 

  • We have begun the process of reviewing and revising the forum’s mission statement and bylaws to ensure the Forum fills its expected role in the campus community.

  • In conjunction with reviewing these documents, we will review current Executive Board roles and responsibilities to increase efficiency and effectiveness. 

  • We will be conscientious in encouraging and promoting diversity on the Executive Board and in Forum participation.

  • We will increase communication and create frequent opportunities for involvement of staff and administrators outside of the Executive Board.

  • We have been given an invitation from the College’s Leadership team to join applicable President’s Council meetings. 

  • The Executive Board of Employee Forum has begun scheduling Open Forum meetings to address your ideas, questions, and concerns on various topics with key leaders. The first Open Forum will take place on April 1st at 12 PM - 1 PM with Roger Stackpoole, Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration, and Treasurer. All staff and administrators are invited to attend. We will encourage discussion during the meeting and facilitate follow-up conversations as deemed necessary. Please register to attend the event here. Once you fill out the form and submit, you will receive a Zoom link for the meeting. If you would like to submit a question prior to the open forum, you may do so anonymously herePlease submit questions for the event by March 12th.

Jeans Friday has been suspended due to the fact that most employees are working remotely. You can still let us know at the link below if you have suggestions for a cause when we are back on campus.

Each Friday, employees are encouraged wear jeans and contribute to the Jeans Friday fund. A $5 donation is suggested, but any amount, large or small, is appreciated!  At the end of each month, the Employee Forum dontates the funds to a worthy cause/charitable organization. Bring your donation to any member of the forum! ​Have a suggestion for a person, cause, or charity to support? Let us know here!

We will select a new cause when we return to campus.
