Hub Workshop: Diversity in the Workplace

Wednesday, November 11, 2020
4:00-5:00 PM
Off Campus Location
Have you ever had to wrestle with changing your name to assimilate at work? Or debated how to wear your hair to an interview? Maybe you’ve considered adjusting the way you speak, or which parts of your experience to share in your application materials? Join us for this coach-led workshop to reflect and articulate a response to challenges like these. Together, we will explore what it means to be authentically ourselves in the workplace and what happens if we face conflict or pushback in these situations.

You should attend this workshop if you are:

- A liberal arts and/or sciences student
- Looking to equip yourself with the tools that will help you respond to identity-related challenges in the workplace
- Interested in DEI initiatives and value diversity in the workplace
- Serving as an advocate for your peers and colleagues

What you’ll gain by attending:

- Consider the tension between social and professional identities and how that can shape your experience in professional settings
- Learn strategies for navigating potentially harmful scenarios and gain access to resources that can provide always-on support
- Gain awareness of existing oppression and privilege in professional spaces and how to respond to challenges like these

The LSA Opportunity Hub aims to deliver inclusive and accessible experiences and welcomes all LSA students to participate. This event will be hosted on Zoom (learn more about Zoom accessibility) and can be accessed by phone or computer. Presentation materials may be shared in advance if requested, and live captioning will be provided.
