Reception with CFAES Equity and Inclusion Program Director

Please join Dr. Leo Taylor, the new Program Director of Equity and Inclusion for CFAES for an informal meet-and-greet on the OSU Wooster campus, 4:30 - 5:45 p.m, Halterman 124, Wooster campus.

Dr. Taylor provides professional development opportunities for Columbus and Wooster CFAES faculty and staff on diversity, equity, and inclusion issues such as implicit bias, microaggressions, and cultural competencies. He is new to OSU and will be visiting the Wooster campus for the first time on Oct. 24. He would like to learn about the campus climate experienced by members of historically underrepresented minority groups, women, and LGBTQ+ students, faculty, staff, and their allies. This is an opportunity for individuals to share their experiences and provide suggestions for how the Office of Equity and Inclusion can best support the Wooster community. Refreshments will be provided.

Dr. Taylor is especially interested in meeting LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff. In an effort to support LGBTQ+ CFAES students, he is spearheading the establishment of a Cultivating Change chapter at OSU and is looking for student volunteers to serve as officers and a faculty/staff advisor based in Wooster. The Cultivating Change Foundation is a national organization devoted to supporting LGBTQ+ agriculturalists. The OSU chapter will involve individuals from both the Columbus and Wooster campuses. If you are unable to attend the reception and would like more information about this leadership opportunity, please contact Dr. Talyor directly (taylor.3408).
