The Career Engagement Office embraces both the open exchange of ideas and learning from varying perspectives, inclusive of the beliefs and identities reflected within the community. We strive to embed these principles into our programming and events. United, we are committed to ensuring students, staff, faculty, alumni, employers, and community members each feel they belong here, unequivocally. We recognize that this work, rooted in our distinctive social justice mission, is challenging, ongoing, and essential to who we are and what we aspire to be.
Given their own identities and backgrounds, the complex and quickly evolving world in which they've grown up, and Seattle U’s commitment to inclusion and belonging, our students have high expectations of employers around diversity recruiting.
Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
Whether you’re new to allyship or a longtime advocate and accomplice, the path ahead will be filled with imperfection. Listening, learning, and improving will serve you well. It’s a long haul. Persevere.
We have curated these resources to empower each of us to learn more, speak out, and take action. It is for community members to review and use for their continued education around race and anti-racism. This page will be updated periodically as we acquire additional resources that will be of use to the community.
NOTE: This list is not all-encompassing and not a complete picture of the resource available for perusal. Also, while some of the resources are free, some may require additional purchases, so please bear this in mind as you review this page.
If there is a resource not listed that you would recommend that we add, we invite you to email us at email@example.com with recommendations.
Engaged Employer Symposium 2020
Facing Forward: Let's Build a Future of Multi-Ethnic, Inclusive and Anti-Racist Workplaces
The 2020 Symposium was hosted in August. Thank you to all the speakers for your thought leadership. Thank you to all the guests for your open minds, and eagerness to listen and learn. While this year’s Symposium was a virtual event, it was still an engaging and powerful experience that addressed issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and social justice in the workplace.
