At the Emerson College Career Development Center, we recognize how identity and intersectionality is tied to one’s professional values and decisions throughout their career. We strive to ensure an inclusive environment and to provide career resources that reflect diversity, inclusion, and equity for alumni and students. 

Affinity Groups

We collaborate with campus partners such as Intercultural Student Affairs and the Social Justice Center and support the EBONI Mentorship Program and other diversity-related programs such as Women of Emerson and our International Student Lunch & Learn series.

Our services and resources support the following affinity groups:

  • International Students
  • LGBTQIA+ Students
  • Students of Color
  • Veteran Students
  • Adult Learners

In addition to highlighting these groups, the Career Development Center is actively pursuing shared equity and accessibility across campus. Our office continues to develop programs and initiatives meant to make internship or job opportunities available to all current students.

Women of Emerson

When we work with the faculty and staff of Emerson College, our aim is to guide our students and alumni within career paths that are known for being unpredictable, very non-linear, sometimes scary, but no doubt exciting. Along the way, Emersonians find their voices and ways to be effective storytellers, no matter their career path.

In honor of stories, our office wanted to take a moment and introduce the Women of Emerson series, a profile series featuring powerful femme-identifying alums making a difference in their fields.

International Lunch & Learns

The Career Development Center hosts international student focused programming throughout the academic year. In an effort to prepare students for a variety of post-graduate options and requirements, we've launched an International Lunch & Learn series offering a number of workshops and meet & greets with Boston-based employers. These programs are meant to educate students and prepare them for a future career in their program of study.
