Diversity workshop in Wooster on Feb. 26th

Submitted by Leo Taylor, taylor.3408@osu.edu

The CFAES Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is collaborating with other diversity, equity, and inclusion leaders around campus to host a 90-minute workshop for the national CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, an initiative OSU President Michael Drake committed to in 2017. The workshop, "Facilitating a Conversation of Understanding", will address the importance of establishing dialogue in building relationships across differences; help participants examine the diversity in their networks to reveal opportunities to increase understanding of people from diverse social identity groups; identify barriers and benefits to having diversity discussions on campus about race and identity; engage participants in conversations to broaden their perspectives; and empower participants to commit to action to promote inclusivity in the groups they are a part of and across their interactions with diverse groups. This workshop will take place at 7 different locations and times on Tuesday, February 25th on the Columbus campus and at each regional campus on Wednesday, February 26th.

The Wooster workshop will take place 1:00-2:30 pm on Wednesday, February 26th in 126 Research Services.

Register to attend one of the sessions in BuckeyeLearn.
