Join the IUP Career and Professional
Development Center and the Center for Multicultural Student Leadership and
Engagement on Monday, October 8, 2018, in the HUB Ohio Room for the upcoming
Six O’Clock Series, “Rooting Out Microaggressions in Our Daily Interactions”
presented by John Rindy, director of the Slippery Rock University Office of
Career Education and Development. There will also be networking with various
employers, Career Center staff, and the presenter following the
Microaggressions are small, often
unintentional slights that seem harmless enough when we say them or do them, but
can be hurtful or even hostile if they attack part of a person’s unique
identity. Creating a welcoming work environment is key to success. Learn about
how we can create a culture of inclusivity.
This event is also part of the Career
and Professional Development Center’s Career Ready Seminar Series, which aims
to provide targeted events to help IUP students gain and understand the
necessary skills and competencies to be successful in life after graduation.
Kelsey Thompson, assistant director
of the CPDC, helped coordinate the event. “We are excited to be partnering with the Six O’Clock Series to have Dr.
Rindy talk about this important topic,” Thompson said. “Creating a welcoming
environment, in both our personal and professional lives, is key to our
success. We are looking forward to a
great presentation, as well as time to network with professionals.”
