Today’s workplace is global, multi-ethnic, and intergenerational. It is composed of people from different backgrounds, experiences, and cultures, representing broad spectra of socio-economic status, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation, and political leaning. Your capacity to work in a diverse environment represents an important consideration for employers. Review more resources offered by the University Career Center to help you locate organizations who share your values and respect the diverse perspective you bring to the workforce!
