Reimagining Race and Work

Nov 29, 2022 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Registration Deadline: Nov 29, 2022 09:00 AM

Identities @ Work logo.

Our multiple, intersectional identities are intrinsically tied to how we find and show up at work - so let's chat about it!
 
This event is an interactive dialogue co-hosted by Career Exploration & Education and Student Engagement.
 

Grab a cup of tea or coffee, and join us to... 

  • Explore, question, and challenge the idea of "professionalism" in the workplace, while reimagining anti-racist alternatives
  • Learn how to advocate for yourself and others, both on campus and in the workplace
  • Construct your self-knowledge by engaging in dialogue with others 
  • Discuss how to build structures of safety and communities of support, both on campus and in the workplace

Who is this session for? 
  • While this session centers and prioritizes the experiences of Black students and recent alumni, we welcome and encourage all students and recent alumni to attend. Building anti-racist communities of care and support, in work and beyond, is a collective responsibility. 
What should I expect in this session? 
  • We begin our sessions with a short presentation, followed by dialogue and space to connect between and across the intersections of our identities. In the last fifteen minutes, we will move into a process of co-exploring and reimagining the world of work as it relates to our identities. 
  • Please note that this session is virtual, and will occur over Zoom.
