Ohio State Advocates & Allies for Equity

To help create a more equitable environment and advance the professional interests of women faculty and staff, the College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Science is hosting the Ohio State Advocates & Allies for Equity initiative on Thursday, March 18, 2021, at 1:00 – 2:30 PM for a virtual session. You are invited to become an OSU Ally for Equity for your unit.

Advocates & Allies is designed to bring men and men-identified individuals further into the gender equity equation by building a cross-campus network of Allies who share an understanding of the effects of implicit bias and systematic privilege and to introduce specific practical actions to help them better support women and people of all genders at the university.

Your facilitation will be led by two Advocates, or senior faculty and administrative men from within OSU who already have a substantial record of supporting gender equity. They will guide your group through structured inquiry, discussion, and reflection to expose participants to ways of better identifying and behaving as Allies. In addition, the Advocates will share evidence-based knowledge, skills and strategies to effect positive personal, departmental and institutional change.
