Digital & Organizational Transformation

Digital & Organizational Transformation (DOT) increases knowledge and recognition of current IT solutions through IT Marketing & Communications, reimagines access to information, tools, and resources, envisioning what's possible through digital transformation and continuous improvement, while cultivating an IT workforce that bridges the gap between our culture and future capabilities.

The following resources are offered to help, support, and educate the OSU community:


GenderMag is a methodology supporting the inclusive design of software tools. GenderMag helps usability professionals and software designers find and fix gender-inclusivity issues within software. By seeking out these exclusions, software practitioners (e.g. UX/UI professionals, designers, developers, etc.) can use these as opportunities to create new ideas and inclusive designs, catering their tools to a broader, more diverse user base.
