Description

Carol Frazer Haynesworth, Marketing Director, National and Diversity Initiatives, Teach for America, New York City. While they have a higher rate of college completion at the levels of the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctor’s degrees than men of color, college women of color often begin in low‐wage jobs, typically experience a gender‐wage gap that begins upon completion of college, often begin in low‐wage jobs, and lack commensurate representation in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering. This workshop addresses barriers, opportunities, and strategies for college women of color interested in navigating the transition from college to the workplace, and in moving up the career ladder.
