Campus Faculty and Staff Invited to Participate in Employee Development Days

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– Cal State San Bernardino staff and faculty are invited to participate in the fifth annual Employee Development Days, hosted virtually by the university’s Staff Development Center, on Thursday, June 18, and Friday, June 19.

In an effort to have a seamless virtual experience for all participants, pre-registration is required and can be done on the Staff Development Center website. Pre-registration will close on Tuesday, June 16, at 6 p.m.

This year’s event, with the theme “Leader in Me,” will feature keynote speaker Jean Steel, founder of Happy People Win, a wellness training and speaking firm, on June 18 at 9 a.m.

Born the eldest of five children, Steel spent her formative years in Africa and Asia. That decade on unfamiliar, foreign soil helped her to cultivate the confidence, strength and resilience many of us work a lifetime to achieve. A born communicator, Steel’s many interests developed into her career path. She earned her master’s degree in wellness mind/body health and has been speaking and teaching across the nation for more than 20 years. Steel has also authored two books: “I’d Like to Run Wild!: A Wellness Action Guide” and “Need Change? Customer Service Tips to Grow from Good to Great.”

The two-day event will also feature professional development and personal growth opportunities through a variety of workshops and a panel discussion.
