Sharon Davies, vice provost for diversity and inclusion and chief diversity officer, and Wendy Smooth, associate professor of women’s, gender and sexuality studies, are leading Ohio State’s participation in the national effort.
“Our participation in the collaborative aligns with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s goals to enhance scholarly research focused on diverse groups. Collaborating with colleagues across the nation to fill in the information gaps on women and girls of color further aligns with our role as a leader in higher education on diversity.” Sharon Davies, vice provost for diversity and inclusion and chief diversity officer.
“We are lucky to have a rich community of scholars at Ohio State already focused on women and girls of color. The Collaborative@OSU will allow us to bring those researchers together to strengthen our research efforts, create new opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations and pursue funding opportunities to support that research,”Wendy G. Smooth, associate professor of women’s, gender and sexuality studies.
