WFU wins award for ‘Diversity Matters’ program
The National Association of Colleges and Employers has recognized WFU’s Office of Personal and Career Development with its “Diversity and Inclusion Excellence Award.” OPCD’s Diversity Matters program is designed to reverse a trend where students who self-identify as ethnic minorities, first generation, LGBTQ, women, or those with disabilities tend to be less inclined to participate in career development opportunities. The OPCD team partners with employers who have diversity hiring initiatives – educating these students about the skill sets needed and opportunities available within today’s marketplace.
