OHR Office Hours for Supervisors/Department Chairs

The Office of Human Resources is pleased to offer Zoom office hours for staff and faculty as an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and receive information on a variety of topics. We will review recent communications and important developments in the workplace as the semester progresses, and provide a resource takeaway to support effective communication within departments. You will also have opportunities to hear specific tips and best practice examples from other supervisors/department chairs.

Please see the OHR Newsletter or the Daily Mammoth for the Zoom link. You can also contact hr@amherst.edu for the access information.

We look forward to connecting with you!

BMO Capital Markets Presents: Understanding SPACs

Have you ever wondered what BMO stands for? Have you been considering whether finance, investment banking or investing in general is right for you? Are you curious what a SPAC is?

Now is your opportunity to LEARN. In this session, Mike Cippoletti ’94, Managing Director and Head of Food, Consumer & Retail at BMO Capital Markets, will first give a short (10 minute) presentation about BMO, including information on their diversity & inclusion initiatives. Then, his colleague, Brian DiCaprio, will provide an overview of SPACs and their rising prominence in the finance industry. After this 20-minute presentation, there will be time for Q&A, followed by breakout rooms for diversity candidates (BIPOC, Women, LGBTQ+ community, etc.) to meet with BMO representatives and hear firsthand what it’s like at the company.

Presenters strongly encourage attendees to read this quick primer on SPACs BEFORE the event, if possible: https://capitalmarkets.bmo.com/en/news-insights/covid-19-insights/specta...

From Protest to Progress Through Partnership: Five Years of Being Human in STEM @ Amherst & Beyond

Catalyzed by the Amherst Uprising, the "Being Human in STEM" (HSTEM) course started as a partnership between students, faculty and staff interested in enhancing student experiences in STEM at Amherst College and beyond. Offered since Spring 2016, the course is an engine for student-led inquiry and action that has shaped the STEM culture at Amherst and has been adopted by over a dozen institutions. Join us to learn more about why HSTEM is a national model for inclusion in STEM and engage in small-group conversations with HSTEM founders, course alumni and faculty and staff partners.
