Join us on October 18th from 9:00 to 10:30 AM as we discuss how to foster diversity, equity and belonging for Latino and Hispanic students. Joining the session are Maria Quiroz, the Education Program Director at the Indiana Latino Institute; Manuela Salazar, Executive Director for the Marian University Latino Leadership Initiative; Fabio Yataco, a Community Leadership Officer with Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF); Jordan Rodriguez, Talent Acquisition Manager with the City of Indianapolis; and Luisa Macer, Community Outreach and Fan Engagement Manager for the Indianapolis Speedway. We are excited for you to join this session as they provide knowledge, insight, and resources to help career professionals in assisting the unique needs of our Hispanic and Latinx student populations.

Campuses and employers are learning to understand the importance of inclusive spaces, events, and language, but are these inclusion efforts resulting in a sense of belonging for the students? To help us answer this question as we navigate 2022-2023 academic year, CDPI (Career Development Professionals of Indiana) and CCCC (College Career Center Consortium of Indiana) are joining forced to continue the ongoing series "Fostering Diversity, Equity, and Belonging through Career Development."

Six-session are planned for the year with speakers and discussions about underserved student populations, including Latinx, International, Queer, Black, Veterans, and First Generation students. Each session will have:

  • Speaker(s) knowledgeable about the unique needs of the student population,
  • A discussion about available resources for both coaches and students,
  • Insight into how to prepare students to navigate the realities of inequitable workspace. 
These sessions will be geared toward equipping coaches, advisors, student workers, and other campus staff or faculty with the skills and resources they need to serve these populations.
