The You Behind WashU is a Professional Development opportunity that aims to highlight areas and people within Washington University and Washington University School of Medicine.  This is a collaborative effort among the Diversity and Inclusion Forum for Faculty and Staff (DIFFS), the Career Center, University Libraries, and the Office of Human Resources.

These informational sessions are designed to allow exposure to leaders, as well as fellow employees, throughout the university.  It is a chance to hear about department structures, the work being done, skill and knowledge backgrounds required to succeed, and information that may aid you in your own development journey.  Please feel free to enjoy your lunch as you learn about different departments across the university community.

The You Behind WashU sessions are open to current employees of the university.  

Look for communication or check this page regarding any information you may need.  If you have any questions, please contact Ariana Jasarevic  at

We look forward to meeting you!
