Career Industry and Networking Series: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Professional Field

Join our expert panelists to explore different pathways to DEI.

Work in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) has existed since the 1960s, evolving into different approaches and philosophies. In its earlier iterations, DEI practices were limited to compliance-oriented content for human resources practices and training. More recently, however, DEI work has become a vocation of its own focusing on promoting understanding and appreciation of all types of diversity to enhance business performance. Outside of the individual organization, DEI exists in a range of professional services, dedicated to advocacy for the advancement of equity and inclusion for society at large. In this discussion, you will hear from DEI professionals who serve in various capacities to elevate and realize diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and beyond. Students and alums welcome!
