Diversity, Equity & Inclusion 365
Continuous education and courageous conversations to create an environment where all Buckeyes can thrive.
November – Indigenous Populations/Environmental Justice/Land Acknowledgements
The month of November is one where many Americans are excited for Thanksgiving and shopping. However, for many indigenous populations, it is a time of mourning and reflection. In this month’s content, we will learn more about Indigenous peoples’ identities and traditions, as well as their role in STEM education. We will also learn about land acknowledgements, and how we can begin decolonizing our spaces.
