On-Campus Resources


From a job description or company website, it can be difficult to tell the extent to which an employer is representative and inclusive. When networking, consider asking these questions to get a sense of the culture of diversity at a particular workplace.

  • Are there specific diversity recruiting programs or efforts?
  • Does the organization offer diversity trainings or workshops?
  • Does the company mention "equal opportunity," and does it have any specific mention of diversity on its website and in its mission statement?
  • Is there a race/ethnicity employee interest group?
  • What percentage of employees are minority?
  • What percentage of those employees are executives/managers?
