Community Celebrations and Photo Galleries
Part of the Cardinal at Work experience is the value we place on collaboration and connectedness.
There are many ways we celebrate at Stanford—from the annual traditions that are part of our academic and research community to the workplace recognition and appreciation programs that honor your contributions to our mission.
And there is so much more to celebrate about each of us. Our individual heritage, identities, and experiences outside of work can come to work with us. And who better to tell everyone about you…than you!
Download Our Backgrounds, Upload Your Own to Share
Virtual backgrounds are a great way to express yourself. We are creating and collecting artwork this year for many cultural events and celebrations. But we know there is more to showcase. We invite you to contribute to this library by uploading a Zoom or desktop background that reflects a cultural celebration or holiday that is meaningful to you.
NOTE: When we create Zoom virtual backgrounds, we are now applying a white graphic element in the top left corner, which allows the reactions and emojis you use in your meetings to stand out more, increasing the visibility of all emoji skin colors.
About This Page
We look forward to building this library together with you. Please share with us the celebrations we are missing, and know this list may not yet be complete as we will add to it continually. If you have questions or additions, email the HR Communications team (email@example.com).
