'Growing our Mindset: Difference Makes US Stronger' Forum October 20

Submitted by Zelia Wiley

Growing our Mindset

TODAY, the College of Agriculture's student leadership will present the fall 2020 diversity forum, "Growing our Mindset: Difference Makes US Stronger; Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity in the Workplace," from 5:30-7:00 p.m., Tuesday, October 20. The event will be in a hybrid format, with an in-person option in 105 Umberger Hall and a Zoom option; Meeting ID 971 0673 7838.

The student groups who will lead the event are College of Agriculture Ambassadors, Ag Student Council and the K-State MANRRS Chapter with the College of AG Diversity Programs Office serving as the host. Our goal is to provide open, honest dialogue for the audience to discuss issues surrounding diversity and inclusion.

To facilitate our dialogue on this most relevant topic, the forum will feature Ed Honesty Jr., CEO of Best Harvest Bakeries. Honesty will discuss the importance of having inclusion, diversity and equity in the workplace. It is hoped this session will build on the variety of sessions held at the 2020 KSUnite and to create bridges for respect, understanding and critical thinking for the future. The event promises to be engaging and impactful yet can only be great with your participation.

Instructors, please note that we will take attendance of students who participate; if you require this information please contact Diversity Programs Office undergraduate assistant, Summer Smades at smades@k-state.edu.
