What does Diversity mean to you?
"Diversity means to love and embrace all humanity and to uplift the silent voices of the world."  - Anthony Pernell-McGee, Associate Director/Director for Inclusive Career Exploration
Our Work with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

This year we made consistent progress with our ongoing work in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. We are actively supporting all students on their paths to finding rewarding, meaningful, and safe work during and post-Williams. We have implemented a DEI working group, launched the first-ever Diversity Career Day, and have added "Create a Change Challenge: Racial Justice and Social Impact Initiative" to our list of programs for the academic year. Please visit our website to read more information about our current DEI commitment and resources. 
Diversity Career Day (Co-Hosted with Amherst College) 

On Wednesday, October 21st we launched the first-ever Diversity Career Day which we co-hosted with Amherst College. The Meetup featured 61 employers that connected and networked with over 300 diverse student candidates. We had more than 130 student and employer interactions throughout the day. In addition to the Meetup, we hosted an alumni panel "Bringing Your Whole Self to Work". The panel was moderated by our very own Essence Perry '22 and a student from Amherst. This panel featured alumni from both institutions, with Landon Marchant '20 and Valeria Cueto '09 representing Williams. We hope all who participated in either of the events had a great experience!

Industry Meetup Success

Being in this new virtual setting allowed the '68 Center for Career Exploration to experiment with a new format for the historical Fall Job & Internship Fair. This Fall semester we hosted the first 3 of 7 virtual Industry Focused Meetups. With this new format, we have been able to connect the Williams students with over 90 employers as well as cultivating 160 group information sessions and 400 1:1 sessions. We look forward to continuing this success in the coming Spring for our remaining 4 Industry Meetups: Education, Science & Health Professions, Startups, and Nonprofit & Government.
