At NCAR and UCAR, we want to have an inclusive, diverse, and legally sound web and digital presence. Captioning benefits people who are deaf or hard of hearing, people who speak English as a second language, users with cognitive disabilities, and anyone working in a noisy environment. Providing captions and transcriptions for our virtual meetings is one of the first steps to creating more inclusive meetings for people with these types of disabilities.

“Over 5% of the world’s population--or 466 million people--have disabling hearing loss (432 million adults and 34 million children)” (World Health Organization). This free webinar by 3Play Media will cover:

·      How to live caption Zoom

·      Taking your Zoom recording and captioning it

·      Tips for getting started with captioning

·      Benefits of providing captions for your events.

Register for Zoom Captioning 101: How to Caption Your Live Streams and Recordings on August 13 at Noon MT.

Contact us with questions at web-accessibility@ucar.edu.

You're invited to the first in a series of three virtual summits hosted by the UCAR/NCAR Workforce Management team. This cross-organization team is taking a close look at what our workforce needs will be within the next 10 years to ensure NCAR/UCAR remains a strong and relevant influencer in the global ESS community.

The team is holding three virtual summits to gather staff input that will guide implementation strategies for UCAR’s Workforce Management Plan. All three summits will cover the same topics and follow the same agenda, but each one will approach the topics from the perspective of a different career stage: early, mid-, or late career.

You’ll have the chance to share your thoughts on topics such as:

  • Talent acquisition
  • Talent management, career development, and retention
  • Performance management
  • Succession, retirement, and legacy planning
  • Organizational structure/working environment

 

REGISTER TO ATTEND:

 

 

 

Because many factors other than years of experience can play a role in determining an individual’s career stage, the Workforce Management team has chosen to not define the stages and instead asks participants to self-identify.

*Any staff member, regardless of their career stage, may participate in any of the summits (and may register for more than one).*

Questions? Reach out to Sue Brundege, Talent & Learning Development Manager in HR (contact information below).
