Week in Review: Week of March 1, 2021

March 5, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

March came in with a bang at Headlines, as the employee newsletter featured a plethora of stories tied directly to the new month. For instance, there were resources and tips to help you honor your colleagues during Recognition Month; a call for book nominations to kick off Reading Month; and sage advice from the organization’s women leaders in the midst of Women’s History Month.

Headlines also looked ahead to next week, when the university participates in the annual Giving Blueday.

In case you missed any of that, block off some time on your calendar and check out the Week in Review!
