JANUARY 2021 DEI SPOTLIGHT
Name: Holly Naveh
Preferred Pronoun: She/Her/Hers
Affiliation/Title: Staff / Career Services Development Specialist
Degree(s): Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology; Master of Science in Education, Higher Education and Student Affairs
Home Country: United States
Language(s) Spoken: English
Gender Identity: Cis-woman
Racial Identity: White
Favorite food: Cinnamon sugar donuts and cider
What are other identities that you would like to share? I’m heterosexual and able-bodied.
Favorite book and why: My most recent favorite book is Know My Name by Chanel Miller because it’s one of the most vulnerable, inquisitive, open memoirs by an incredibly talented author, artist, and cartoonist.
Favorite thing to do when not at TC: Hiking and road-tripping when I have time, reading and playing video games when I’m at home.
DEI Contribution/Highlight: Because we are a community (at Taubman, locally, nationally, and globally), and we have a responsibility to each other to challenge institutions and Power, as well as strive for a better tomorrow. DEI is important because we are important.
Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? I help lead a group of staff members interested in racial justice within our roles and work, help out with the college compact committee, and try (with Lou) to improve processes and access points in our work with career development and students. My greatest joy in DEI work is helping advocate and push for the work students are already doing.
