December 7, 2023 @ 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Learn and apply authentic, innovative and impactful techniques to consider how we engage more purposefully within our OSU communities as well as with our external communities.

The Art of Hosting Conversations That Matter is a suite of simple yet powerful approaches for designing and hosting/facilitating conversations, engagement processes and meetings. This approach offers innovative and effective ways to harness the collective wisdom of groups and invites participants to co-create new perspectives in ways that value all voices equally.
