Students of Color
The Hiatt Career Center supports Brandeis undergraduate students and alumni of color and all cultural identities to consider how intersecting identities might impact work and professional development.

Culturally Specific 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?
