JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Florida State College at Jacksonville’s (FSCJ) Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) has launched “Faces of FSCJ,” a video project featuring the stories of faculty, staff and students. Each video highlights an individual’s story and how their unique journey has made them who they are today, demonstrating the value of bringing all thoughts, ideas and perspectives together for a more cohesive and effective institution.
“We know FSCJ is comprised of dedicated individuals from various backgrounds, but we don’t always have the opportunity to hear how each person’s experiences have shaped their current and individual realities,” said Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer and Executive Director of Employee Relations Lisa Moore, J.D. “By taking the time to listen and learn from each other, we are working to create an environment that is more diverse, equitable and inclusive, where everyone feels welcomed and valued.”
FSCJ’s Office of DEI was established to intentionally recognize and uphold the importance and value of diversity and inclusivity. Bringing together the voices and experiences of all students, faculty and staff, the College and DEI aim to further attitudes, perceptions, education and policies that support and represent FSCJ and the community at large.
To learn more about FSCJ’s Office of DEI and to see the first videos in the series, visit fscj.edu/dei. Additional spotlights are being filmed and will be released on the website and other mediums upon completion.
