CEO Action for Diversity & InclusionTM is the largest chief executive officer-driven commitment in the United States. Chancellor Ronnie Green signed the CEO Action pledge in 2018 and the university remains Nebraska’s only higher education institution to join the CEO Action movement.

CEO Action is intended to advance diversity and inclusion efforts in the workplace. It outlines a specific set of actions that the undersigned companies will take to cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed and employees feel comfortable and empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has made this commitment to elevate the dialogue so that together, we can become more inclusive leaders and ambassadors for diversity – on our campus, on teams and in our communities.

Pledge

The I Act On pledge is a personal pledge that any individual can take to help drive inclusive behavior in their everyday life. We invite you to take action in support of making our workplaces and community more inclusive.

The Pledge: I pledge to check my bias, speak up for others and show up for all.
I will check my own biases and take meaningful action to understand and mitigate them.
I will initiate meaningful, complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations with my friends and colleagues.
I will ask myself, “Do my actions and words reflect the value of inclusion?”
I will move outside my comfort zone to learn about the experiences and perspectives of others.
I will share my insights related to what I have learned.

Take The Pledge on the CEO Action website
My Husker Action wordmark

As part of our commitment to CEO Act!on, we encourage Huskers to share their actions. My Husker Action is where individuals acknowledge and demonstrate authentic, genuine and intentional actions to eradicate systematic racism, injustice and inequality by celebrating actions taken that lead to addressing and changing racist and unjust practices, policies and behaviors.
