Holiday and End-of-Year Guidance and Best Practices
As we venture into the time of year when many of teams gather to celebrate the year’s accomplishments and the holiday seasons, we want to reflect upon past events, contests, and gatherings that may not have been as inclusive as intended. We all want to recognize the incredible work that has been accomplished as the calendar year comes to an end, and that can still be done through the many benefits of community building and recognition activities. Throughout the year, and using the UC Davis Principles of Community as our guide, we ask that you review the information linked below to create an open dialogue that will inform event/activity planning processes and final products.
