Global Thinking, Local Programming: U.S. Cultural Context: Diversity & Inclusion Issue Corps

Continuing the conversation after the Diversity & Inclusion Designathon, Renee Pardello, Assistant Dean of the University of Minnesota Extension, will lead us through a session looking at why we need to be thinking globally, so that we can effectively program locally. 

Specific goals include:

  • Understanding the value of global dynamics and cultural knowledge

  • Examples to better understand the interplay how global realities affect us locally

  • Understanding changing and projected demographics of the US

  • The history and current efforts in internationalizing the Cooperative Extension System to improve work efforts abroad and domestically.

This was a terrific presentation and I highly recommend it.  So many data visualizations--I can't wait to use the resources to enhance my local programming.  Thank you!

Glad you enjoyed it, Kathryn. Renee made that data come to life! It was a good follow up for the data visualization webinar.
