Thanks to our sponsor, Chevron, this event is free to NACE members.
In an effort to introduce companies to College of Engineering (COE) students at Oregon State University (OSU), especially those served by the COE Center for Diversity & Inclusion, we hold a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) student-company event with some of our region’s largest and most impactful companies. The primary purpose of this event is for industry leaders to share their company’s commitments to DEI, while providing students with important information about potential employers. Each company has six minutes to showcase its DEI policies, support for affinity organizations and/or employee resource groups, mentorship programs, strategies for advancing employees of color, and information on how to apply for internships and permanent positions. Following the presentations, students visit in small groups with the company representatives. Join the presenters to hear how this event engages companies, alumni, and students, while giving insight into future employer needs. This event is open to both career service individuals and employers, and all are welcome to attend.
Following this program, you will be able to:
- Create a DEI event that meets student and employer needs;
- Plan, coordinate, and engage with employers to create a DEI presentation effective for the recruitment of students; and
- Recognize violations within Title IX and civil rights laws and how these might affect the means in which institutions monitor their recruiting efforts.
