We invite students interested in meeting a range of professionals and learning about potential career opportunities to attend. This networking event will feature all Black professionals. Research has shown that networking can be especially challenging for Black/African American students, who may not only experience general discomfort, but also face unique challenges from not being perceived as powerful, credible, or resourceful — this deficit-based assessment often results in less outreach and relationship-building and thus less opportunity. Black/African American  students are also at higher risk of becoming isolated, struggling to navigate the racial boundaries at social events — in particular, they hesitate to share information about themselves, which limits their ability to be authentic, to receive jobs or internships and to build deep relationships. 

Refreshments provided.
