Founder and Chief Elevation Officer of activateelevate, Zillah Fluker, gave a talk at the Bush School of Government and Public Service on Thursday, February 21, entitled “Winning Relationships.” Such relationships work toward building diversity and benefit the workplace. The event is part of the Bush School Diversity and Inclusion Committee’s efforts to celebrate Black History Month.
The Diversity and Inclusion Committee is a student-led organization that is part of the Student Government Association. Its purpose is to provide both a forum for and community of students to discuss issues relating to diversity and inclusion.
The Committee hosted a bingo night on the main campus at Texas A&M, where students could participate in Black History Month trivia. Texas A&M will be having a series of events throughout the month that Bush School students are encouraged to attend.
Dr. Frank Ashley, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, who teaches the course Managing Diversity in Public and Nonprofit Organizations, states, “Public servants must have a good understanding of diversity and inclusion because of the diversity of the individuals who may be served by their organizations.”
