Please see our Employer Engagement Infographic to learn about the various ways your organization can get involved with University Career Services and/or Department-Based Career Offices.

Inclusive Workplace Leadership Series - September 13th

An inclusive workplace is one where everyone is valued, respected, and treated fairly. These workplaces breed trust, engagement, and high-performance! University Career Services put together a series of workshops to help students understand how companies utilize diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices to accomplish this; and to also learn how to evaluate a company’s DEI practices and values. We invite our employer partners to attend these virtual workshops to learn ways to enhance their own messaging around DEI, talent acquisition, and talent retention.
