New Supervisory Recognition pilot program

UNCG is piloting a new Models of Inclusive Excellence Supervisory Recognition program.

The purpose of the program is to align supervisory actions, accomplishments and behaviors with UNCG’s values of inclusiveness, collaboration, sustainability, responsibility and transparency. The program seeks to recognize supervisors for tangible accomplishments in providing a positive work climate, ensuring equity and inclusion, and creating a culture of collaboration that supports career growth and professional development.

This program is a pilot program sponsored by the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and administered by Human Resources. As such, it seeks to recognize staff and faculty supervisors for their contributions to the university mission and goals.

There will be two Models of Inclusive Excellence awards (one faculty, one staff) given each year.

A supervisor who models inclusive excellence demonstrates these actions and behaviors:

  • Applies fairness and consistency to all actions;
  • Empowers others through a positive leadership style that supports individual creativity and innovation;
  • Builds a culture of inclusion that models the values of dignity, respect, and integrity;
  • Takes measurable steps to ensure equity and inclusion in organizational processes;
  • Understands and supports work/life balance;
  • Appreciates the contribution that a diverse workforce offers and takes measurable steps to build and sustain a diverse workforce;
  • Promotes teamwork through inclusive, cross-functional teams;
  • Communicates goals and expectations clearly and establishes accountability for results;
  • Removes unnecessary barriers to accomplishment and promotes cross-functional problem-solving;
  • Collaborates with other peers and organizations and supports a culture of collaboration;
  • Manages institutional resources to maximize departmental contributions to institutional goals;
  • Encourages professional development and provides tools for mentoring and professional accomplishment;
  • Creates a positive climate that models UNCG values of inclusiveness, collaboration, sustainability, responsibility, and transparency.

The deadline for nomination submissions is noon, March 15, 2013.
