IOE Community Dialogue Series

The IOE Community Dialog Series is a series of facilitated discussions between members of the IOE community that surround a speaker and topic. The intent is to hear and engage with diverse viewpoints, ideas, and experiences to understand differing perspectives or challenges some of our colleagues or students face while acknowledging the explicit and hidden structures that influence our community; especially as it pertains to the work we do. All members of the IOE community are welcome and invited to engage.

Each discussion should last about an hour, with an extra 30 minutes for additional discussion and socializing. Food will be provided.

If you have a specific topic or speaker you are passionate about and would like to facilitate a session, please contact us.
