Thu, October 14, 2021 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM See description. The Centre for Student Involvement & Careers invites you to participate in our upcoming Community Connection Event, sponsored by TD.

Our October event titled ‘But Where Are You Really From? Navigating your Racial Identity Throughout your Career Journey’ will provide a spotlight for our panelists to share the tools they have used to leverage their lived experiences and discuss strategies for building one’s network in order to gain access to career information, professional opportunities, and future mentors.

This event will consist of two halves: the panel portion of the event is open to all UBC students and will be recorded through Zoom. The second half of the event is reserved for Racialized students, with more informal conversations with alumni in breakout rooms. The small group conversations will not be recorded.
