You don’t have to be cruel to be kind and intervene! Stop incidents before they occur, and talk to your friends about it so they will intervene as well. Our goal is to change the culture on the OSU campus by creating a community of leaders and active bystanders. This session covers specific examples to train you to become an active bystander.

It is important now more than ever to take a new and refreshing look at change. We can reframe the way change is viewed. This event goes beyond entertainment and offers a step-by-step model for growing inside of change. Learn to leverage new opportunities. Take charge of change by transforming the stages of change into the goals and principles of change. Experience change responses – motivating, inspiring, and encouraging. Learn to guide others positively through change.
What we must know about leading through change:
In our global economy, our survival depends on being innovative and on the cutting edge of technology. Research has demonstrated that diverse groups are smarter and stronger than homogenous group. Scholars found that students who are in more diverse classes and interact informally with diverse groups reported: (1) growth in the active thought process (2) enhanced intellectual stimulation (3) increased motivated and (4) improved academic skills. Structural diversity within organizations provides opportunities for people to work in groups that are composed of people who are different (National Academy Press, 2011). This workshop will included research based information, interactive activities, engaging dialogue and best practices. Please bring your smile and a willingness to have fun!
