The Future is Bright Black
“This theme explores and defies everything we are taught Blackness is. Blackness is multidimensional and its intersectionality is expansive. The theme grounds itself in everything that has made us who we are while anticipating everything Blackness can and will be.”
- Maayan Eaves, MSA Marketing and Communications Student Coordinator
Starting fall 2019, the Diversity & Inclusion team is working hard to bring companies to Poole to allow students to learn more about the company, their inclusive practices and build their network.
Each Tuesday will showcase a different theme, allowing students to learn more about different identities and how the company uses inclusive practices to support their employees and communities.
This increased exposure to the many aspects of companies will increase student awareness and interest in the opportunities available for internships and full-time placements.
