STS Highlights: February 2023
Black History Month remains a time to honor the contributions and legacy of African Americans from activists and civil rights pioneers to leaders in industry, politics, science, and culture. The month-long celebration drives conversations about diversity and inclusivity. February is our shortest month of the year and thematically, the busiest. In addition to Black History Month, we also have Valentine’s Day, Random Acts of Kindness Month, and Canned Food Month. Please utilize the resources I’ve curated below. I plan to focus on:
- Promoting diversity and inclusivity
- Practicing sexual harassment awareness
- Engaging in random acts of kindness
- Providing a local food pantry with donated canned goods
Celebrate Black History
Multiple U.S. Government entities joined in paying tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity to achieve full citizenship in American society.

Take the Flu Seriously!
GET THE SHOT! Flu viruses are constantly changing so it’s not unusual for new variants to appear. A lot of research goes into each year’s vaccine. The best way to reduce the risk of flu and its serious complications is by getting vaccinated each year.
Prevention measures are largely the same for ANY respiratory illness. Get vaccinated and boosted.
