Get to know the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences


Taking time to research the company or organization can reveal a lot about their environment. Taking these steps can help determine if an organization is the right place for you to work.

  • Visit their website and review their mission statement.
  • Do they show a commitment to DEI anywhere on their website?
  • Read reviews of the company and visit their LinkedIn page.
  • Does their staff appear diverse?

Stand Out

Update your resume/cover letter to make your stand out among your competition to diverse and inclusive organizations. All of these may have components of promoting diversity and inclusion.

  • Highlight any identity-based organizations or clubs you have been a part of or conferences you have attended.
  • Were you involved in volunteering, committees, etc.?
  • Do you speak more than one language?


Remember, you are interviewing the organization just as much as they are interviewing you!

  • Ask about team morale and office culture.
  • Affinity Groups are formed around shared interests and goals. Similarly, Employee Resource Groups (ERG’s) are employee-led groups that foster a diverse and inclusive workplace. Ask if the organization has or is willing to support affinity or employee resource groups.
