Partnership Promotes DEI Workshops for SNAP-Ed Staff

During summer 2022, OSU Extension and the Office of Outreach and Engagement partnered to bring a series of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) workshops to staff working in SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education). SNAP-Ed is a free, evidence-based program that helps people lead healthy, active lives. The workshop series addressed awareness, skills development, dialogue training, and practice. Whitney Gherman, an Extension educator in Marion County, served as a facilitator for the program and worked with the Office of Outreach and Engagement on content and delivery.
