We understand that many students were unable to fulfill their study abroad plans due to the impact of COVID-19. But studying abroad during your undergraduate years is just one way to have a global experience! Join Vassar and our partners for a special 7 College Spring Fair to discover the variety of international opportunities you can explore after college. There will be live panel discussions, pre-recorded videos, and various online resources to help you learn more about your global options. All students are welcome to attend!
On Blackness: Showing Up Authentically in the Workplace (Alumnae/i Panel & Reception)

Wednesday, 2/24 | 8:00-9:30 PM EST | Virtual

This alumnae/i panel will be an engaging conversation between Vassar grads and current students on ways to show up fully in all their identities, with a focus on racial identity in a time of racial reckoning, uprisings, and activism work such as Black Lives Matter. Confirmed alumnae/i include:

Tré Artis ’15, Graduate Student Researcher, Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital
Kendall Coleman ’11, Manager, Community Impact, Diversity & Inclusion, Charter Communications
Matt Ford ’17, MFA Candidate, University of California, San Diego
Anastassia Knight ’15, Creator Success Manager, Jellysmack
Rudi Williams ’16, Paid Media Associate, kate spade new york
Ellie Winter ’18, Communications and Outreach Coordinator, Africana Studies Department – Brown University

We will open with a one-hour panel with time set aside for questions from students. In the remaining half-hour, we will move our alumnae/i into breakout rooms so that students can chat with them more informally. In recognition of the subject matter that our panel will focus on and in hopes of promoting open dialogue, this event will not be recorded for Vassar alumnae/i and students to view at a different time. This event is a collaboration between the ALANA Center, Career Development Office, and Transitions. RSVP for the event here! Anyone who does not have access to Handshake that would like to attend the event can email Jannette Swanson at jaswanson@vassar.edu to get the Zoom link.
