Hub Panel: Navigating your Identity in the Workplace

Wednesday, March 31, 2021
5:00-6:00 PM
Virtual
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 to hear directly from LSA alums to 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 panel if you are:
- Encountering instances when you feel unsure about expressing your full self at work
- Looking to learn from others’ experiences so you can advocate for yourself, your peers, and your colleagues

What you’ll gain by attending:
- Explore the tension between social and professional identities and understand how that can shape your experience in professional settings
- Gain awareness of existing oppressions and privileges in the workplace and how to respond to challenges like these
- Connect with LSA alums who can answer questions you have

Interaction Level: Low
- Video and audio presence is not necessary
- The event will mainly consist of passive viewing with the opportunity for small interactions like asking questions
NOTE: Students who cannot meet participation expectations are still encouraged to attend

RSVP now to reserve your spot! The link to join this workshop will be emailed to you after you RSVP.
