Join us on March 21, 2023, from 9:00 to 10:30 AM as we discuss how to foster diversity, equity and belonging for veteran students. Panelists include Nancy Jirousek, Senior Director of Transfer and Military Services at Baldwin Wallace University, Michael Brown, Manager of Veteran and Military Services at Baldwin Wallace University, and Sarah Harrison, Vice President of Veteran Engagement at INvets.
Baldwin Wallace is among the top, Gold-rated "2021-2022 Military Friendly® Schools" nationwide. The Gold award designation, published by Military Friendly® online and in GI Jobs magazine, reflects "leading practices, outcomes, and effective programs" for active military and veteran students. The University also received the Collegiate Purple Star Award for its ongoing efforts to support students with military backgrounds. Universities with the Collegiate Purple Star Award designation provide service members, veterans, and military-connected students the necessary support system and guidance to pursue higher education.
INvets is a nonprofit public/private partnership with the state of Indiana that’s all about attracting, retaining, and cultivating our state’s veteran workforce. They are dedicated to matching our nation’s veteran workforce and their spouses with rewarding, lucrative career opportunities here in Indiana.
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 veteran student populations.
Part of the Fostering Diversity, Equity, and Belonging through Career Development Series
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 forces to continue the ongoing series "Fostering Diversity, Equity, and Belonging through Career Development."
Six-sessions 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. This session counts toward the six available toward the Fostering Diversity, Equity, and Belonging through Career Development Certificate.
