The Equal Opportunity and Compliance office wrapped up its 2018 Empowering Carolina Fall Seminar Tuesday, October 9. More than 150 people packed into the Student Union’s Great Hall for this year’s event, which featured Brian Clarke, a Carolina alumnus and an administrative judge for the Charlotte District Office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The event’s purpose was to highlight mental health in today’s workforce. Specifically, Judge Clark spoke about his experiences with depression and anxiety, how employers can help their employees with mental health concerns, and the importance of work/life balance and self-care initiatives. Empowering Carolina, which launched in spring 2016, is a series of campus programs held throughout the year to raise awareness of resources for individuals with disabilities and to celebrate disabilities as part of diversity.
