The DINE is an experience that provides talented students with an opportunity to connect with accredited employers during fall recruiting season.

No, this event is open to all educational levels — first year through graduate students and alumni. We encourage all class years to attend DINE. This will be a great opportunity to make lasting connections, learn, and prepare.

Why Should I Attend?

This is a great opportunity for you to build relationships with a variety of organizations that are committed to diversity and inclusion in a virtual setting that facilitates conversations. You will learn about various organizations and opportunities through connecting with representatives.

Will it be Like a Career Fair?

No, this event is not like a career fair. There will be no organizational booths with information; it is a virtual networking event. Networking events allow for you to connect with a variety of people to learn more about what they have to offer and how to stay connected.

The Diversity and Inclusion Networking Event is a true networking event. Organizational representatives, students and alumni will interact virtually. The event will begin with an opening presentation and directly following employers and students will make connections in small groups and individually.

Do employer attendees have to be human resources personnel?

Representatives from your organization need to be prepared to speak about what diversity and inclusion means for your company. Representatives do not need to be from HR, however they need to be informed about the company, resources and opportunities, especially as it applies to diversity initiatives. 

Representatives should showcase mentoring programs, pipeline initiatives and targeted internship opportunities aimed at increasing diversity and inclusion at your company. 

Highlight philanthropic efforts your company engages with, especially those that highlight D&I efforts.
