Equity and Affinity Group Career Resources

On this page you will find resources for students under the umbrella of systemically marginalized identities. 

These resources are just a sampling of what’s out there and are a work in progress. If you come across another resource that you’d like to see added to this page, please email [email protected]

It’s important to note that-

  • Your background and your experiences should be valued by employers
  • We encourage you to conduct a mock interview or two with one of our career advisors to practice discussing your background and experiences and how they make you a valuable addition to the role you’re applying for.
  • These resources are not telling you how, why, or what you should discuss regarding your identity. These resources are meant to prime your reflection on what you might share based on your needs.
