Emory President Claire E. Sterk offered brief remarks and mingled with attendees at the 2017 Employee Council Town Hall. The Employee Council invites all Emory employees to attend this year’s gathering, now known as the Spring Leadership Social.

The Emory University Employee Council Spring Leadership Social (formerly the Employee Council Town Hall) is Monday, April 23, from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Goizueta Foundation Center, room 525. 

All employees are welcome. Participants are asked to RSVP to Benjamen Nforneh, benjamen.nforneh@emory.edu

This year's format will be a mix and mingle with Emory President Claire E. Sterk and members of her senior leadership team. During the event, employees will be invited to engage in dialogue with the president and the president’s leadership group.

Employee Council leaders hope that this year, with the many new faces on the president’s leadership team, conversations will center around the council’s 2017-18 theme: “How to prosper and thrive as an Emory employee.” 

The Employee Council has spent the past seven months hearing from leaders, faculty and peers on ways employees can flourish in both their personal and professional lives when they have a deeper understanding of the impacts that core components have on their lives. Some of the core component topics discussed in the council’s monthly meetings include:

  • health
  • wellness
  • mindfulness
  • movement
  • diversity and inclusion
  • vulnerability, resilience and adaptability
  • how “place” sustains us

The Employee Council is looking forward to discussions around these topics and also gathering information from some of the newer members of the president’s leadership team on their backgrounds and why they chose Emory.

Established to facilitate communication between Emory employees and the university administration, the Employee Council serves as an advisory body to the president.
