The Ohio University Office for Diversity and Inclusion with UHR announced their joint initiative: Diversity Essentials. Diversity Essentials is offered once each semester and includes a new cohort consisting of members from the community, city, and select university units.
The program is designed with four three-hour sessions held each semester with staff from several university units, employees of the City of Athens or Athens County, and community members to complete the full cohort. The Diversity Essentials participant engage in an interactive environment including hands-on exercises, small group discussions, and facilitated large group discussions to share and explore ideas and concepts regarding diversity, increased awareness, and inclusion. The four sessions will be facilitated by three-member teams with experience and education in various areas to round-out the development experience.
Your participation in this initiative is key to the success of this program and the improvement of our community culture. The goal of Diversity Essentials is to promote an open and diverse culture that increases awareness and understanding in the university and surrounding community through interactive professional development sessions.
