Jody Gray, Director, Office for Diversity and Inclusion, College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, University
Broadcast Date: September 24, 2019
Today’s headlines have brought diversity and inclusion to the forefront of the American workplace, and in higher education, it means looking through an internal and external lens to focus on campus culture and outreach to students and constituents. The communications office plays an integral role, which starts by promoting a better understanding that diversity and inclusion, while closely interconnected, are very different. Diversity refers to a broad range of human differences, including race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, age, social class, physical ability or attributes, etc. Inclusion refers to a cultural and environmental feeling of belonging.
This 90-minute webinar starts by delving deeper into the meaning of diversity and inclusion and then discusses how the marketing office can promote diversity and inclusion both internally and externally through intentional and strategic communications. It’s a tall order, but the right strategies can produce positive results and a more diverse campus population that feels truly connected to your college.
