Alum Connection with Chelsea Racelis: Better Business – Change within Companies

Friday, September 30, 2022
3:00-4:00 PM
1040 LSA Building Map
Chelsea Racelis says her “liberal arts education gave her the tools to bring her passions into the workforce,” but her passion and drive was shining even before she jumped into the working world. While she was on campus, Chelsea worked with the Ross portion of the U-M Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion strategic plan, acted in the first year orientation show with Educational Theatre Company, and co-led the Black-Asian Coalition. Upon graduation Chelsea went into consulting with Ernst & Young (EY), and soon after, a role on EY’s corporate responsibility team. Looking for a more impactful role aligned with her values, and knowing she could still be leveraging her liberal arts skillset to a greater degree, Chelsea joined Cisco as the Inclusion & Collaboration Development Specialist.

About Chelsea:

Chelsea is an all-rounder, completing a dual degree at U-M in International Studies and Business Administration (‘19) which she uses to make change in her personal and professional spheres. Serving as the Inclusion & Collaboration Development Specialist at Cisco, Chelsea describes herself as a strategist-idealist whose purpose is to do world-changing work with life-changing people. Her day job is powering inclusive futures for all at Cisco and the rest of the time, she supports human rights leaders in Myanmar and beyond, advocates for racial justice, and tries (unsuccessfully) to become a morning person.
