Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Message from the Interim Assistant Dean and Chief Diversity Officer:
Welcome to the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) resource page
Our website offers an important space for sharing information, empowerment through education and support. The Learning Opportunities page will be updated each month with upcoming Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) events taking place within the Ohio State Community or hosted by diversity organizations. Events also count towards the Inclusive Excellence Certificate Program. As member of the Buckeye Engineering community we must continue to increase our own awareness and understanding of DEI. We encourage you to use the resources provided below as well as the Holiday and Heritage Calendar, Inclusive Terms and Language page, and the Anti-Racism links and resources as we work to become self-aware and as a tools to help increase our leadership skills, build mutual respect for each other and create a sense of community within our units. Whether you are a student, staff or faculty member you will discover ways you can personally make a positive contribution to diversity, equity and inclusion in the College of Engineering.
Often, mental illnesses and disabilities are invisible to an onlooker, but are a large part of the daily lived reality of the person experiencing them. There is also a lot of misinformation about what mental illnesses and disabilities look like, how people experience them, and how they can impact people outside of that individual. In this month’s content, we’ll begin thinking about how mental health and disability accommodations and care are an important issue for EVERYONE, and how to be more mindful of these differences.
