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.
Although this session has a specific focus the content may be applicable and interesting to others who are welcome to join.
