Sprint Discussions

This subgroup of the IE Advisory Committee hosts biweekly sprint discussions with our colleagues.  Topics of our conversations have ranged from podcasts to videos to articles, and we flex to accommodate current events relevant to DEI.  Topics are suggested by team members, and most recently have been focused on the Derek Chauvin trial, January's Capitol Hill riots, and the symbols of white supremacy.  All UVAFinance team members are invited; if you haven't received an invitation, please contact Patty Marbury.
