Presented by Roshni Lal, Assistant Director for Alumni Career Services, West Coast, Syracuse University

What’s our story? What’s their story? How can we reflect upon our own identity and background to make meaningful connections with diverse alumni in order to chart new waters together?

This webinar provides theoretical frameworks, empirical qualitative and quantitative research, tools, approaches, and resources that enable career services practitioners to design and deliver tailored career services through a diverse, inclusive, and equitable lens. The goal of the presentation is to provide information and approaches that serve to give alumni of color the ability to engage in career self-efficacy and self-advocacy when making informed career determinations and selecting equitable and inclusive workplaces. Often, alumni of color must navigate dual-identities when existing within a dominant culture while maintaining and respecting the sanctities of their personal culture – career services personnel are instrumental facilitators of this process of growth, development, advocacy, balance, and sustainability.
