Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Diversity and Inclusion Networking Event?

This event is designed to provide a networking opportunity for our increasingly diverse student population and prospective employers. The Diversity & Inclusion Networking Event is an unique experience that provides talented students with diverse backgrounds the opportunity to network with accredited employers. This is a great opportunity to meet with promising candidates for your recruiting needs.

Who will I connect with at the Diversity and Inclusion Networking Event?

This event is open to all students (first year students through graduate students) and alumni and all majors. Our hope is that organizational representatives and students/alumni utilize this event to learn about various diversity topics as well as build relationships for current and future opportunities.

What is the event format?

The Diversity and Inclusion Networking Event is a true networking event with minimal seating. Unlike a fair, there will not be individual tables/sections for each organization. Organizational representatives and students/alumni will interact freely in the hopes of establishing relationships. We encourage representatives to bring business cards. A name tag will be provided to you upon arrival, however we encourage you to wear your organization name tag if you have one. The reception is scheduled for 6:30–8:30 pm.

What do I need to bring?

Please do not bring any signage/materials, as you will not have a dedicated table. We encourage representatives to have their logo visible to students (polo, name tag, etc.). Refreshments will be provided.

Do attendees have to be human resources personnel?

Attendees from your organization do not necessarily have to be human resources personnel, however we would like for the representatives to be able to speak about your organization in general and specifically about any diversity-related initiatives. Representative attendance is limited to a total of three.
