A Digital-First Approach to DEI: Scaling Impact Through Curated Communities
One of the most important questions any career services professional can ask themselves is “are we providing equitable access to our resources for every single student?” At the University of Washington, with a highly diverse community of nearly 50,000 students, the career services team has had to think critically about what it means to provide equitable access and how they can better leverage technology to improve access for historically underrepresented populations.
Join us to hear directly from Briana Randall, Executive Director of the Career & Internship Center at the University of Washington, where she will discuss UW’s digital-first approach to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA) efforts. Briana will highlight how her team has evolved its workflows to provide curated resources for students from unique backgrounds and identities, which have been instrumental in helping them scale support services for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, undocumented, and students with disabilities, just to name a few. By creating a digital space for these resources, one that is openly accessible and highly visible, they have been able to increase their utilization and ultimately their impact.
