Outline of the event


University staff fostering diverse connections

The work of university staff is made possible by collaboration with various people inside and outside the university. Through collaboration, new possibilities are being created for universities in the development of education and research, while their partners are placing unprecedented expectations on universities. In addition, if we shift our perspective to the workplace, the staff with whom university staff work together have a wide variety of attributes in terms of nationality, gender, position, employment status, etc., and in order to organically connect individuals as a team, it is necessary to give various considerations and respect for diverse values in communication.
Under these circumstances, university staff are required to create and nurture new value by connecting people and organizations from different positions.
In this SD Forum, we will think together about how to "collaborate" with diverse people with different positions beyond the framework of the past, how to connect it to issues such as workplace revitalization, academic research and organizational development at universities, student growth, and regional revitalization, and the power of staff that is questioned in doing so.
