Diversity 3.0 will be offered twice in March 2018. Please register for the session you will attend.
The goal of this training is to provide language to address discrimination without shaming others, but rather fostering inclusion. We accomplish this goal through interactive media, positive response techniques, and activities that encourage empathetic understanding through exploring real life identities.
Would you like to delve into Diversity & Inclusion deeper? HR has developed a new initiative called Passport to Diversity and Inclusion.
The Diversity & Inclusion courses 1 through 4 are requirements for this curriculum. Complete 4 other electives courses and receive your Level 1 certificate.

Dustin’s parents hail from Arkansas, and his family moved to suburban St. Louis when he was one year old, so that his father could take a position as a computer programmer for the Missouri-Pacific railroad. Dustin is the second of five children, and here discloses the information required of him as a St. Louisan: He went to high school at Chaminade and lived in Crestwood / Sunset Hills. Dustin and his wife, Megan, now enjoy spending time at their Webster Groves home where they care for backyard chickens and assemble jigsaw puzzles.
Genetic Lung Disease’s Molecular Roots Identified
Respiratory infections peak during the winter months, and most people recover within a few weeks. But for those with a rare genetic lung disease, the sniffling, coughing and congestion never end. The tiny hairlike structures called cilia that normally sweep mucus through the airways don’t work properly in people with what’s known as primary ciliary dyskinesia.

$5 million aids development of artificial red blood cells
Trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 46. In the U.S., there are about 30,000 preventable deaths each year in patients with severe bleeding from trauma.
In an effort to stem the number of fatalities, a research team led by Allan Doctor, MD, a professor of pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, is working to develop artificial red blood cells to serve as a blood substitute and a bridging therapy that might keep injured people alive until they can get to a hospital.
Congratulations to Jennifer Avari Silva, Todd Druley, Andrea Granados, Andrew Janowski, and Philip Spinella.
