Expanding Your Table: Intentional Networking and Allyship
Presented by Justin Chin, Director of Career Services, Eastern Oregon University
In our job searches, we are given the scenario, “Imagine being on an elevator with “Fill-In-The-Blank Executive” from “Your Dream Employer.” What would you say to them? How would you make a lasting impression on them? In our work as community leaders and do-ers, how do we own our space? As community connectors, how do we help new voices and perspectives to be heard and seen? In “Expanding Your Table – Intentional Networking and Allyship,” Justin Chin will lead you in a discussion on skills to lean-in on your privileges to amplify marginalized voices.
