012 How Study AbroadHelps Career Development
Today, we’re asking the question “Does the decision to study abroad impact your career preparation?” Spoiler alert: it does! By its very nature, studying abroad will expand your awareness and understanding of different cultures and different societies, helping you learn to bridge differences, and embrace diversity. But cultural skills and competencies are not the only competencies you can expect to develop. When you factor in the ways you prepare for your trip, the communication and travel plans you’ll need to make, and learning to get around in a new city, you’ll gain confidence in your ability to navigate through new experiences.

008 DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion)
During everything that is happening in 2020, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has taken a front seat in the world of hiring. How does a focus on DEI improve individual lives, and companies as a whole? We spoke with Kristine Snow, founder and CEO of Level D&I (leveldi.com), and Alex Lane from Career Success, to find out what DEI means, who it impacts, and ways to make your work environment more inclusive and welcoming. Kristine also shared a few resources with us:
1. Check out the Level D&I Podcast: http://www.leveldi.com/podcast
2. Video: Understand why protests are happening and why African Americans are upset (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4amCfVbA_c).
3. Educate yourself on the history and existing pervasiveness of racism. Remember, it is not on the black community to educate others about their struggles, it is on us to prioritize learning about these injustices. Provide education and resources for non-black employees to educate themselves on these issues.
