The Diversity Employer Expo is not a career fair. At a fair, you dress up, "sell" yourself to an employer, and cross your fingers to get a job. But at the Diversity Employer Expo we remove the uncomfortable barriers of job searching and make it easy for you to connect with employers. In a comfortable, business casual environment students get to mix and mingle with employers over dinner, hear from a guest speaker, and participate in a career expo. It's a great opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds to meet with employers in a very relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
Join us as we hear from Ben Demers from Out & Equal, the world’s premiere nonprofit organization dedicated to achieving workplace equality and building inclusiveness and welcoming work environment. Demers will share about the importance of inclusiveness in an organization.
Networking dinner - Students and employers connect during dinner to engage in casual conversation about their careers, their companies, and the resources they have available to help those with diverse backgrounds transition from college to career.
