Diversity Inclusion Initiatives

Global Diversity and Inclusion Conference 

Career Services and the Office of Multicultural Affairs work collaboratively to plan a full day conference focused on diversity in the world of work. Designed to provide workplace information to a diverse group of students who would like to engage in conversations about diversity and how intersections of identity affect the work environment.  Since 2013, the offices of Career Services and Multicultural Affairs have collaborated to create the theme for each conference with the participation of Fordham Faculty and Employers. Some of the past conference themes have been: “Finding Balance, Achievement Empowerment”, “Leadership in a Global Society” and “From Empowerment to Action”.
