Participate in the Advocates & Allies Initiative


The Advocates & Allies for Equity initiative, which is part of the president’s 2020 Vision of inclusive excellence, helps move us toward the strategic plan goal of creating “a culture of innovation and diversity at Ohio State.” You can participate in this initiative and help establish a more equitable environment for women and other underrepresented groups in your unit/department by requesting an Ally facilitation.

Contact The Women’s Place, and we will guide you through the simple process of scheduling an Ally facilitation for men in your department. A number of departments and units across the university are joining the president’s diversity efforts by building a cross-campus network of male Allies for equity at Ohio State.

To engage your department/unit and help change the culture at Ohio State, submit an Ally facilitation request.
