 May 2017

May 3rd: DU Women's Coalition Town Hall:  Equity in the Workplace 50 50

Workplace equity is an issue that affects women across their lifespan – from first jobs, through mid-career, and into retirement – and extends beyond questions of basic pay equity.  Join the DU Women's Coalition and DU professor Dr. Nancy Reichman for an interactive discussion on Equity in the Workplace, with particular focus on three key areas that affect women:

• Organizational Culture
• Family-Friendly Policies
• Career Advancement

Dr. Reichman, a mayoral appointee to the Denver Women's Commission and former chair of the Colorado Pay Equity Commission, will share her expertise from both experience and research perspectives, followed by small group facilitated discussions among Town Hall attendees.

The DU Women's Coalition Town Hall, including lunch, will be held from 11am-1pm in AAC 290, with the program beginning promptly at 11:30am.   Registration required.

DU faculty and staff, click here to register.


Dr. Nancy Reichman is a Professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology and Director of the Socio-Legal Studies Program at DU. She has written articles and books on a number of topics including pay equity, gender and workplace regulation, white-collar crime, sports regulation, and global environmental regulation. She is also the Research Director for the Colorado Women's College Collaboratory.

May 11:  Women's Leadership Mindfulness Workshop, 11:30am - 1pm


The secret to women's leadership stamina and how to balance 'doing it all'. Calling all vibrant women leaders. This experiential and interactive class will focus on filling the gas for your tank, courage for your vision, and a way to stay focused on what matters most. Grace will also teach you mindfulness techniques to minimize pressure, and divorce yourself from unrealistic standards of 'balance'. We will also learn how to honor feminine wisdom in a world of grit and hustle. This workshop is not about traditional "leadership best practices" instead, we will discover how to maximize your energy through mindfulness and focus so you can be more effective as you lead and multi-manage work and personal life.  DU employees, register via Pioneer Web, in the Wellness section of Training. UHALL Rm 306

May 19-20:  Inaugural DU Alumni Weekendhuman logo

On May 19-20, the University of Denver will hold its inaugural Alumni Weekend–a celebration for not only alumni but for faculty, staff and students as well. This new tradition is an opportunity to host alumni on campus, welcome graduating students from every school and college into the alumni family, and to celebrate the achievements of accomplished alumni.

Since 1951, DU has honored the University's alumni at different times of the year. This year, as we advance a new tradition around Alumni Weekend, we will honor six distinguished alumni with DU's first annual alumni awards for their contributions to society.
• Brenda J. Hollis, JD Law '77, Prosecutor of the Special Court of Sierra Leone
• Craig Patrick, BA Business Administration '69, Member of the National Hockey League Hall of Fame
• Crisanta Duran, BA Public Affairs & Spanish '02, Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives
• Debra Crew, BA Spanish & International Studies '93, President and CEO, Reynolds American Inc.
• Imran Khan, BSBA Economics & Finance '00, Chief Strategy Officer, Snapchat
• James Cox Kennedy, BSBA Management '70, Chairman, Cox Enterprises

We are thrilled to recognize these members of our nearly 140,000-member alumni family for their diverse achievements and global impact. We will also pay special tribute to alumni we have honored at past events.

Inspired by the vision expressed in DU IMPACT 2025 to deeply engage our alumni and friends in the life of the University, we hope you will join us as we celebrate the University and our alumni community. With your support, we are creating new traditions for the University. Alumni Weekend will become the spring signature alumni event to complement Homecoming in the fall and Founders Celebration in the winter.

Registration and a complete schedule of events for the weekend can be found here.
