3rd Annual Meeting Diversity in STEMM at Ohio State – 2019

Ohio State faculty and staff committed to diversifying the STEMM talent pool will convene in April 2019 to learn about the initiatives that are already in place on our campus, brainstorm how we can interact more effectively, and have an opportunity to network within this community.


The ultimate goal was to synergize to make our programs more diverse at all levels.
