Embracing Diversity in Experiences

Friday, September 21, 2018 — 4:30PM-5:30PM

Often we focus on diversity in terms of a person’s ethnicity, color, or sex. But diversity goes much farther than that. There is diversity in our thought-process and diversity in our experiences. In a technical field, the general career path is relatively standard: specialize in a major that will best prepare you for after college, get an internship (or two) in the same field, and then get a job. But there are a lot of people who come to their career from completely different areas, and navigating that process is something that isn’t talked about often. Regardless of the professional background of a person, the end goal of supporting each other and fostering growth in a position remains the same. It’s time to talk about how best we can do that.
