Ron Jones: Dialogues on Diversity in Science
October 23, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies was fortunate to have received a DEI Mini-Grant from the Office of Health Equity and Inclusion (OHEI) in order to host an innovative diversity dialogue event featuring EMMY award-winning actor and diversity trainer Ron Jones.
Ron Jones is the executive director of Dialogues on Diversity (DOD), a theater company that uses theatrical models to make messages of difference, inclusion, and social justice accessible, engaging, and entertaining.
On October 23, 2018 from 4:30 – 6pm at the Power Center for the Performing Arts, Ron Jones and his cast will create a performance specifically catered to address obstacles faced in our scientific communities and work spaces titled Dialogues on Diversity in Science.
“In a fast-changing world – we must embrace a new sense of cultural commonality and curiosity. This requires cultural competence and a new way of looking at people who are different than ourselves. When we do this, our differences become an opportunity rather than an obstacle.” – Ron Jones
We encourage all of you to join us in this important conversation and learn how cultural differences can become an opportunity! This event is not limited to our Medical School community, so please feel free to share it with colleagues across campus.
