Ohio University Office for Diversity and Inclusion

Ohio University Office for Diversity and Inclusion Ohio Univeristy, Office for Diversity and Inclusion Diversity is a dynamic phenomenon, which means that any definition of diversity will miss some of its evolving features.

With that caveat in mind... Diversity signifies difference and heterogeneity between and among individuals, groups, and cultures. Specifically, diversity is inclusive of all ages, races, ethnic groups, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, national origins, cultures, socioeconomic classes, abilities, ways of thinking, geographic regions and religions. The Ohio University's statement on diversity affirms its commitment to promoting an atmosphere where understanding and acceptance of cultural and racial differences are ensured. DAE celebrates diversity, promotes access and advances equity through the following programs: • International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS) • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Center • Multicultural Center and Programs (MCC/MCP) • Office of Multicultural Student Access and Retention (OMSAR) • Regional Campus Diversity • Women's Center • DAE central programs include: • Campus Community Outreach • Diversity Essentials Francine Child's Diversity Leadership Award • Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration • Opportunity Hires • Student Research Symposium on Diversity • Summer Institute for Diversity Education (SIDE) Follow us on twitter @OUdiveristy for #OUdiversityQuickFacts and important University updates!

I am reaching out to you as we at @EchoVoices (link to page https://www.facebook.com/OfficialEchoVoices/) are quite impressed by what your organization and your members embody. Thus, we would like to ask if you are interested in being a contributor for an upcoming social venture that will not only allow your members to connect with each other but reach individuals just as passionate and engaged as you are from all corners of the globe. Based in Orange County, California, we are a social platform focused on causes, doing good, and movements across the globe. There are 4 major parts to our website: 1. Voices: This is for members to share their thoughts and the heart of the platform which is where the name of our platform comes from. 2. World: (News/ Articles/ Opinions/ Insights) We scour all over the world and discover the most interesting, unique, and thought-provoking articles, videos, stories, art, documentaries, and movements that cannot be found on mainstream media to provide our members different perspectives. 3. Mentoring: Members can pose questions to our mentors who are thoughtful leaders in their respective fields. 4. Petition, Movement, and Pay It Forward: To inspire and encourage our members to speak up, share their passions, and inspire others to do the right thing. As a contributor, you will get to interact with like-minded individuals also seeking to raise their voice and be a part of a growing community that is making a real impact on our society. It is important for us to note that this site is not for everyone. We encourage members to think critically about these various issues just as much as the sheer act of speaking up. That is where the challenge lies. Are you up for the challenge? If so, please visit our website: www.echovoices.com.
Once this bill goes to a hearing, victims of discrimination will be asked to provide testimony to the voting representatives. Updates to come.
