Identity in the Workplace Series

Identity in the Workplace

A dialogue between Carey students and alumni who identify as, ally, and advocate across various intersectional identities.

Each session opens with a member or two of our community sharing their stories around challenges and opportunities in the workplace, then opens up to discussion on that specific identity in the workplace.

This program offers a safe and open space for all, and we are coming together to create an inclusive experience. There is intersectionality among these identities, which we welcome and will naturally come up in each session.
