We Walk for Inclusion.
The Cardinal Walk brings together Stanford employees for a shared wellness experience, boosting our community’s well-being by giving us a chance to connect with each other. Our personal well-being improves when we feel connected to our community, and in turn, this sense of belonging and inclusivity for all is essential to help our community thrive.
The focus of this year’s walk—We Walk for Inclusion—will unite us in support of our journey toward an inclusive and diverse campus where all feel respected, valued and a sense of belonging.
The event will include opportunities to connect with staff groups and learn how you can improve inclusion and belonging in your everyday interactions through The IDEAL Learning Journey. Visit the Cardinal at Work website to take your next IDEAL Learning Journey steps and together we can build skills to embrace diversity, advance equity and cultivate inclusion.
Are you working remotely on August 4?
For remote and hybrid employees who won’t be on campus for the walk, we have a Cardinal Walk toolkit available so you can participate remotely. The toolkit will include a pre-recorded warm-up, directions for organizing a walk at your worksite, and a customizable flyer to promote your walk. You can walk virtually with your team, in-person with other employees at your Stanford worksite, with family or friends, or you can take a solo walk.
Share a picture of your walk on the event’s Tacboard live stream by the end of the day on August 4 for a chance to win a prize. Text your photo to (864) 664-2109 and share your name when prompted to be entered into the prize drawing.
All submitted photos will appear on the large digital display board in the Stanford Stadium. Photos from those attending in-person will also appear on the display so all participants are included and can see each other.
Virtual Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging resources will be available to those attending remotely.
If you’re unable to walk remotely or in-person, we invite you to view the Tacboard photo live stream during the event.
