A brief description of the program, including examples of peer-to-peer outreach activities:

Belmont has identified six core competencies that are expected of individuals in our community, which are as follows: Diversity and Inclusion, Critical Thinking, Customer Focus, Communication, Managing Change, and Collaboration and Teamwork. Our employees are required to complete a training course on each core competency, which are facilitated by trained peer volunteers. The sessions are presented in a small group format to allow for peer-to-peer discussions, learning, and the sharing of best practices. For example, the Diversity and Inclusion course has small groups assess Belmont Diversity efforts and provide feedback for further strengthening our culture of inclusion. The Customer Focus course introduces our five guiding principles of service to the Belmont community, including “Show We Care” and “Do it Right” which focus on caring for one another and for our surroundings.
