"We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same."
During a time when people are more physically distanced, UT Southwestern’s Business Resource Groups (BRGs) have emerged as effective outlets for employees to stay engaged across remote locations. The Office of Institutional Equity & Access’ Division of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) and BRG leaders realized a need early on to cultivate a sense of connection among employees during the pandemic. Approximately 7,000 employees of the institution’s more than 18,500-member workforce were working remotely by mid-March. To bridge the gap between workers on their home-based computer screens, the groups used creative thinking to maintain programming and forge a new normal.
