Abstract Scope The health and performance of an academic unit, and correspondingly the success and retention of faculty, post docs, staff and students, are influenced greatly by its culture. Faculty and administrators often wrestle with communication and policies aimed at influencing the culture associated with issues like safety, mentorship, quality assurance, assessment and accreditation, and equity, diversity, and inclusion. In this presentation I’ll share some ideas for simplifying processes, principals to contribute to a safe, healthy, and inclusive academic work environment. The focus of our reciprocal discussion will be less on a top-down approaches than on what individuals can do to help their leadership and colleagues build a respectful and productive workplace, aligned with strategic priorities.
