Kindness Connects Us: Spread positivity, warm-heartedness at UT Southwestern

The Employee Advisory Council (EAC) is celebrating kindess at UT Southwestern through the Kindness Connects Us campaign – beginning on World Kindness Day, Nov. 13, 2020, and ending during Random Act of Kindness Week on Feb. 23, 2021. Every week, a member of the EAC will share their favorite quote on kindness, in an effort to lead each week at UT Southwestern with kindess and warm-heartedness. 

We challenge you to join our efforts in spreading kindness and positivity throughout our workplace.
