Join the Workday Team for Workday Wednesdays, a 60-minute session held on none other than Wednesdays from noon - 1:00 p.m. The weekly sessions provide faculty, staff, and students an opportunity to meet with members of the team and subject matter experts to learn more about a given topic, task or process in Workday.
Help us in our diversity efforts!
Brandeis is committed to increasing the compositional diversity of its employees. To measure our progress, we must have accurate and up-to-date demographic information. We can help meet these goals by simply updating our demographic profile in Workday. Understandably, there may be questions around this request.
- What happens with this information?
Demographic information in Workday is secure and not open access. The Office of Human Resources has oversight of this information and carefully keeps your individual data private. In general, more complete data allows for better record keeping and benchmarking against our peer institutions as well.
- Who has access to it?
The only people who have access to your demographic information are the staff in Human Resources. Even your manager is not automatically granted access to your demographic information.
- How does the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) use these data?
ODEI only seeks to have access to aggregated demographic data. The purpose is to measure progress toward DEI goals and to discern impacts on different communities at Brandeis. ODEI will never have access to your individual demographic data.
- How does the Office of Planning and Institutional Research (OPIR) use these data?
OPIR uses the aggregate data to support the work of ODEI and others to support the goals of increasing diversity at Brandeis. This office also reports on these data to external agencies in aggregate.
