Women

With direction and advice from the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, the Center for Career Development created the Women Affinity Community. This community’s goal is to provide resources that are focused on supporting self-identified female students.

Female students and alumni can encounter unique challenges throughout the career development and job search processes and in the workplace. As a Women’s affinity community follower, you will get timely alerts on relevant resources, news and advice, and events. The Career Center is committed to advocating and supporting female students and alumni as they navigate the intersection of career and identity.
