Wiser on Wednesday: Extension Keys Series

Wiser on Wednesdays

Wiser on Wednesday is back! In 2022, we want to align the series with the Extension Keys developed throughout 2021 for our organization to embrace and uphold our mission and values. Each workshop will relate to an Extension Key - Trust, Inclusion, Care, Adaptability, and Efficiency. 

Please mark your calendars for the following dates:

Wednesday, March 23, 1-2:00pm (Inclusion & Care)

Presenter: Nicole Nieto, Engaging Diverse Communities 

For March, we will be focusing on engaging diverse communities. We are excited to have Nicole Nieto, assistant vice provost for Outreach and Engagement in the Office of Academic Affairs, present the workshop. This workshop examines the impacts of social identity and systemic imbalances of power in engaging diverse communities and provides foundational knowledge to participants of key terms and concepts, including social identity, bias, privileged identities, and targeted identities. 

Join the Learning and Organizational Development Unit on Wednesday, March 23th, from 1-2:00 pm. Registration is a requirement; please visit https://go.osu.edu/wiseronwed. The workshop will not be recorded.
