Pacific North Webinar: Supporting Students/Clients to Navigate Bias and Discrimination in the Job Search Process


November 1st, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

If you cannot attend during this time, please RSVP and a recording of the webinar will be sent out shortly after the event


Are your students/clients ever concerned about the perceptions hiring managers will have of their name, sexuality, visible or invisible disability or mental health condition?  Do your students/clients ask for your advice on how much they should share with the potential employers when networking or in the interviews? Despite the growing number of diversity hiring plans implemented across various sectors, job seekers still face bias and discrimination during the hiring process. 

In this webinar, Lakeishia Mathews, the Director of the Career and Internship Center at the University of Baltimore, will share strategies on coaching and advising students on overcoming bias in the job search process.
