Description

Gessie Belizaire, Executive Assistant, National Black Nurses Association, and URI alum. Employers often report that U. S. college graduates lack workforce readiness, the combination of academic (college readiness), training (job readiness), behavioral (work readiness), and developmental competencies (career readiness) that are likely to lead to satisfaction for both employer and employee. This workshop examines the potential of multicultural student organizations to provide a competitive edge to members interested in preparing themselves for the workplace. Because exploration of personal and group identity is a priority, members often learn self‐awareness that is crucial to career readiness. In addition, members of multicultural student organizations tend to be more exposed to the attitudes toward cultural difference that enhance work readiness.
