Getting your foot in the door...

On Friday this week there is an event about race and power in the workplace. From the Center for Career Education web site:

Unfortunately, students of color do not advance on par with their peers once they enter entry level jobs. Why does this occur? How can you navigate the subtle nature of institutional racism and advance your career? Learn how to create transformative dialogue about power and privilege in the workplace.

This event is part of the series "Getting Your Foot In The Door - Career Education for Multicultural and Nontraditional Students." Please check the calendar at www.careereducation.columbia.edu for upcoming events in this series.

Supported by the Center for Career Education, Office of Multicultural Affairs, the School of General Studies, and the Center for Student Advising.

And stay tuned: On October 5th, there will be a workshop at the CCE on racial stereotypes and how they translate in the workplace. This workshop will be hosted by no other than the venerable Carmen Van Kerckhove, CC '99, the keynote speaker for the 1st Annual New York City Asian American Student Conference in which we took part spring this year. Carmen is the president and co-founder of New Demographic, an anti-racism training company. She also writes for four (4!) of her own blogs: Addicted to Race, Racialicious, Anti-Racist Parent, and Race in the Workplace. We're enormous fans of Carmen, and are so glad she's coming back to speak to us!
