Nov. 19. 2021 – International EAG Interest Session
- Employee Affinity Groups (EAGs) are employee-led and facilitated groups formed around interests, backgrounds, identities, and common bonds. Those who identify as international, non US citizen, immigrants, refugees are encouraged to attend. The meeting is open to all Vanderbilt employees, including staff, faculty, and postdoctoral scholars, regardless of identity. The goal of the interest meeting is to gather input, ask questions, and offer suggestions about how a International Employee Affinity Group at Vanderbilt can best serve this community, including creating programming for International students, scholars and employees.
