Meet the Inclusion Council

From book discussion groups to Pride Week events, the Inclusion Council brings our team together. Getting to know our coworkers helps us better understand our work, goals and ourselves.

Rooted in teamwork

While growing philanthropy at K-State is our goal, we recognize this requires many uniquely talented people actively building an organization rooted in teamwork.

At the KSU Foundation, we aim to help all colleagues feel welcome, included and whole in our workplace. We want to build and strengthen diversity and inclusion efforts in ways that improve our reach, expertise, and impact.

This Inclusion Council’s work spans internal and external projects:

  • IC Buddies meet-ups for new employees
  • Listening Lounge presentations by guest speakers
  • Juneteenth actitivities
  • Representing the KSU Foundation at the campuswide KSUnite rally
  • Lunch and Learn workshops on ethnic foods
  • And more
