Hocking College Hosts WIDEN Conference for Inclusion and Diversity

Fri, Nov 16th, 2012

The Diversity Without Division Alliance of Hocking College will host the Winter Inclusion & Diversity Education Network (WIDEN) Conference on December 6 and 7 at the Inn at Hocking College.

The WIDEN program aims to create a heightened awareness of how historical, social, and structural dimensions affect contemporary intergroup relations, empower participants with resources and enhance professional networks in order to provide diversity programming to their organizations and communities.

During the conference, participants will identify their own cultural bias and how it impacts their communication and relationships with others. They will also gain an awareness of how their life experiences have shaped their existing perceptions of diversity.

This program has been approved for an award of 1.1 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) by Ohio University for those who wish to obtain this recognition for participation. There is an additional cost of $20 for the CEUs.

Conference registration is $100 for faculty and staff and $60 for students. The registration includes both days, with a continental breakfast and lunch each day. To register for the WIDEN Conference, please visit the WIDEN Registration Page.
