Election Day, Art Contest, Stories of Thanksgiving

 November 2, 2020

Election Day = No Meeting Day
In order to allow Duke employees flexibility in casting their vote, Duke University and Duke Health will observe a no-meeting day (except for routine huddles in the clinical environment and other necessary operational activities) on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3. Classes will continue, though faculty always have the flexibility to make alternate arrangements. Supervisors are encouraged to be flexible with scheduling to enable staff members who are unable to vote outside normal work hours to do so before, during or after their assigned shifts.

Vote for Art to Illustrate Racial Justice Series
Twelve staff and faculty have submitted artwork to be considered for a new series of stories in Working@Duke, and now it’s time to pick a winner. With your vote, the top five submissions with the most votes move on to the selection round, and a panel of judges will select one winner. Vote by 12 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 6.

Share Your Story of Thanks
This holiday season, we won't be able to come together as we have in the past, but we can lift each other up with a message of gratitude. Who, or what, are you thankful for at Duke or beyond? Is it a colleague or special work project? Maybe it’s your health? Whatever it is, Working@Duke would love to hear about it. Share your story by Nov. 9.
