Diversity Dialogue Brown Bag Series to address issues of difference

Interactive sessions start Feb. 16  


The Ohio University Diversity Dialogue Brown Bag Series will kick off on Wednesday, Feb. 16, with "Recognizing Cultural Identity," from noon-1:30 p.m. in Baker University Center 205. 

The series features four brown bag sessions designed to educate people about issues of difference on and off campus. The sessions, which will be facilitated by certified trainers, will help bridge cultural gaps, promote cross cultural interactions and understanding in the community, and address challenging contemporary issues.

"These brown bags will give the people on campus an opportunity to talk about cultural differences in an interactive learning format," said Brian Bridges, vice provost for diversity, access and equity. "This year's brown bag series is a trial run for next year when we continue the Diversity Dialogue Series, but add the option of receiving continuing education units." 

Other scheduled Brown Bag sessions include:

  • The Global Village, March 9, noon-1:30 p.m., Baker 240

  • How Perceptions Shape Diversity, April 13, noon-1:30 p.m., Baker 240

  • Marginalization & Privilege, May 17, noon-1:30 p.m., Baker 240

The sessions are sponsored by the Office for Diversity, Access and Equity. To reserve a spot, call 740-593-2551.
