2018 Diversity and Implicit Bias Awareness Program

The Council of Graduate Students, in partnership with the Office of Student Life, Student Activities and OUAB Grad/Prof announces this year’s program for graduate and professional students as well as postdoctoral scholars on diversity and implicit bias awareness.  This is a great opportunity to dive into material that will enhance self-awareness, advocacy and leadership competencies. You will learn to understand the challenges, consider possible solutions and discover how to begin addressing the problem of underrepresentation. Implicit bias training has been shown to play an important role in the hiring and promotion of underrepresented individuals, including women. Those who complete the program will receive a certificate. Listing completion of this program on your CV will show employers that you are knowledgeable and committed to this vital issue. Additionally, this training will help participants become better leaders who can identify talent, assemble, and effectively manage diverse productive teams.

Fill out the form (go.osu.edu/DIBP18) to register.  Please note that staff are invited to register and participate in any of the sessions free of charge.

To earn the certificate, participants must complete Open Doors.  Additionally each participate must attend one implicit bias workshop AND an identity focused workshop.  Workshops will be offered during the remainder of the 2018 calendar year.  Students may complete the certificate in one semester or across multiple semesters
