Event Format

  1. Abbreviated employer panel (includes all employers that are participating)

*The panel will be more of a 1 minute introduction of each employer. Questions from the audience will be saved for the networking portion.

Panelists will discuss:

  • Who they are, what their company does
  • Why they feel this event is important/why they wanted to participate
  • What efforts their company is making to prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion
  1. Networking
    • Students will be randomly placed in breakout rooms, max of 8 students and one employer per room
    • Discussion of diversity and inclusion efforts at your company
    • After 20 minutes students will switch room (or the employer will), there will be a total of 2-3 switches
  1. Wrap Up
  • An email will be sent to students with contact information for all employers (that are willing to share) so students can follow up, or ask questions to employers that they did not get a chance to meet
