The “We Are One” Leadership Retreat will be a fun-filled weekend event. Surrounded by women of color, each student will have the opportunity to meet other Ohio State students, staff, faculty, and administrators in diverse leadership roles. The retreat will set the table for critical conversations around gender and racial identities, challenges, and suggestions for development as a leader. Our themes surrounding leadership, wellness, and sisterhood will help those in attendance realize that although we may be different, We Are One.
