Buckeye Diversity Dialogue Series
The Council of Graduate Students' Buckeye Diversity Dialogue Series provides opportunities for Ohio State graduate students, faculty, staff, and community leaders to have intentional conversations about relevant issues of equity, diversity, inclusion, social justice, and much more.
These conversations are designed to be an informal gathering, over lunch, to allow participants to learn from and educate one another. Although each event has a theme, the goal is to encourage participants to determine where the conversation goes. The Buckeye Diversity Dialogue Series is meant to be a catalyst for discussion on difficult topics, as it relates to diversity and social justice.
Due to the nature of the conversations, each event will be limited to 10-15 graduate students, registration is on a first come first serve basis.
All sessions will be held from 12:00-1:00pm.
Lunch will be provided for each participant.
Please contact DaVonti' Haynes (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information.
