OCTOBER
October 13, 2 pm - Setting the Course, Expanding the Network
Speaker - Tanya Menon, Associate Professor, Ohio State University Fisher College of Business
Tanya Menon is fascinated that in a time when we can instantaneously connect with nearly the whole world, we often instead filter our relationships even more narrowly. As such, we get stuck in dead ends, missing out on new people, ideas and opportunities. Menon and her collaborators have studied the mundane feelings and innocuous daily habits that cause people to remain in their social comfort zone and produce this polarization to explore ways that we can be more intentional about navigating the social world. Menon’s goal is to create new ways for people to connect with each other so they can live richer, more creative lives.
