Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

The Center for Career Development is passionate about creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment that empowers students of all backgrounds to achieve their career goals and aspirations. With a highly diverse student population and the title of the first Hispanic Serving Institution, our diversity is a source of strength. We are committed to ensuring that all community members we work with including students, alumni, and employers are S.A.I.N.T.S—Safe, Accepted, Included, Needed, Treasured, and Seen. We aim to achieve this goal through engaging in diversity programming for specifically identified underserved populations and creating tailored career development opportunities that reflect representation, multicultural awareness, and intersectionality. No matter your background or identities, we hope that you feel empowered and equipped with the tools you need to succeed during your time at Marymount and beyond. 

Below is a schedule of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion career development programming, as well as clips from past events. We welcome your engagement and feedback with our office as we work together to define what it means to be a Saint – embracing our own and others’ identities, uniting through diversity.

If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, do not hesitate to reach out to us at careerdev@marymount.edu
