Diversity in the Workplace Series

A man focuses on work in a classroom setting.

In partnership with the Career Connections Center and Diversity, Inclusion, and Outreach, the Diversity in the Workplace series is a series of student workshops with the focus on marginalized identities in the workplace and preparing students to address microaggressions, stereotypes, biases and discrimination that may occur in the workplace.

The series will also help students to become aware of any privileges they may have and learn how to become an ally and advocate for underrepresented communities.

Diversity in the Workplace Series for the spring semester are conducted virtually via Zoom webinars.
