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 page will be updated monthly with upcoming DEI awareness building events, resources and professional development opportunities.  We encourage you to use the resources provided on the side bar and below on your personal journey to self-awareness and as a tool to help increase the leadership skills and sense of community within your unit.  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 engineering. 

New for 2021

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 365: Continuous education to create an environment where all Buckeyes can thrive.

Each month we will post something you can Read, Watch and Do to increase your diversity, equity and inclusion awareness.  Visit the Professional Learning Opportunities link for upcoming events and the DEI 365 monthly topic, meeting date and dialogue tools. At the end of each month the CDO will host a lunch and learn to offer our engineering colleagues a space to connect and share what we have learned and thoughts on how we can apply it to everyday situations.   

January – Diversity, Privilege and You

The world is made up of diverse people – this is a fact we all know. What is more difficult to wrap our minds around are the concepts of privilege and oppression, and our roles in not only promoting diversity and equality but protecting it. This month’s materials will give a brief intro to begin thinking about privilege, how it affects the lives of all of us, and what we should be doing in engineering to promote more inclusive and diverse environments for a more equitable future.  Click Here for this months Read, Watch, Do and Reflect list.
