2020 Identity Career Series
As the semester comes to a close, it's time to celebrate your unique self. Hiatt recognizes that you bring numerous experiences, skills and perspectives both to the classroom and the workplace and, we want you to further discover and embrace them.
Below is programming from our 'Unleash Your Identity Career Series.' These interactive activities provide you with the opportunity to tap into yourself and show you how to leverage that in the workplace. These programs also help support Hiatt's partnership with the Brandeis Black Action Plan
and our commitment to diversity.
I Am Remarkable
December 1 | 6:00 - 7:30 pm
When was the last time you celebrated YOU?
I Am Remarkable is an initiative that empowers women and other underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond. Many of us struggle when it comes to talking about our own accomplishments. Cultural and gender modesty norms as well as impostor syndrome can prevent anyone from acknowledging their remarkable attributes and expressing their achievements.
Equity in Action with Jessica Sanon, MBA’17
December 2 | 6:00 - 6:45 pm
It starts with an idea.
Jessica Sanon, MBA’17 wanted young black girls and women to feel inspired and supported as they further pursued their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). In 2017 she launched sySTEMic Flow, a social enterprise that aims to increase the number of black women who pursue and graduate from an academic institution with a STEM-related degree. Not only does this program adhere to the academic relevance to STEM, it also attacks prominent social issues that young women need to know in order to defeat the culture of power and break down barriers.
Be Your Authentic Self in the World of Work
December 3 | 6:00 - 7:00 pm
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all plan when it comes to sharing aspects of your personality, identity and sexual orientation in the workplace. You may be weighing what, when, where and how coupled with your own concerns and hesitations.
This interactive Brandeis alumni panel is made up of professionals with various backgrounds and experiences. Together, they will lead a discussion about their personal experiences and journeys as well as answer questions related to identity at work.
