Navigating Identities At Work
Wednesday, January 29, 2020 | 6-8 pm
Sherman Function Hall | Hassenfeld
Brandeis alumni and employer partners will lead a casual conversation and panel discussion about navigating identity in the workplace. This event will help you learn how to build and expand your alumni network and professional connections, identify how your intersecting identities and unique background are highly valued by employers and get you thinking about your transition to the world of work as it relates to your identity in the workplace.
This is not a recruiting event, but a chance to speak honestly and openly with supportive and inclusive alumni and employer partners. A light dinner will be served. Hosted in partnership with Student Support Services Program (SSSP), Myra Kraft Transitional Year Program (MKTYP), Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Fellowship (MLK Fellows), Posse, Gender and Sexuality Center (GSC), Intercultural Center (ICC) and Student Accessibility Support (SAS).
