Diversity in the Workplace

Many companies and organizations are focusing on a commitment to diversity. Employers are interested in you for the unique perspectives and experiences that you will bring to the workplace. Organizations may implement initiatives to recruit and retain a diverse workforce. Differences people bring to the work environment may include race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, geographic background, education, economic background, visible and invisible disabilities, and communication styles.

The University Career Development Center offers unique networking opportunities like the Diversity Networking Reception, Career Fairs, and other workshops. Check out our Events page to see upcoming events that you may be interested in.
