CFAES DEI Speaker Series Kick-Off!
An Identity in Crisis: The Impact of a Single Decision
Thursday, February 16th, 12-1:15pm ET | Register here: https://osu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUrfuGppzsjGdAAfeI_FHylAeYE2JE7TUWy
This Thursday at noon CFAES will be kicking off our DEI speaker series with Courtney Johnson from the Office of Institutional Equity. Courtney will provide a first-hand account of an issue that affects many people in our community and can create significant obstacles to getting jobs and other opportunities. Courtney will be talking about her experience getting a DUI and being incarcerated. Her voice isn’t one we hear often because of stigma, stereotypes, and the differential impacts of social identity on the ability to respond to such a crisis. Although Courtney routinely speaks publicly about her experience, she has requested that the event not be recorded. Please join us on Thursday to learn about her story and ask questions.

Workshop: Exploding Myths about Transgender and Nonbinary people
Monday, February 20th 4-5:30pm ET | Register here: https://osu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5ARGteY8wrDEfFI
In this 90-minute workshop we will cover basic terminology and differentiate identities related to gender and sex that frequently get confused. We will address several common myths and misconceptions about transgender and non-binary people and identify strategies for creating welcoming and inclusive environments for people of all genders, including those who challenge cisnormative expectations. Ways that cisgender people can serve as allies to transgender and non-binary people will be identified. This program is a collaboration with the Wexner Medical Center Diversity Council.
