The core values of the program are to highlight Awareness, Knowledge, and Advocacy that will help students within the cohort navigate their experiences in developing, learning, and engaging the nuances of holding and claiming space for their identities in their future work/personal environments. The program will strive to focus and highlight students’ experiences (both personal and professional) with a career-focused mindset to help shape their intersectionality in engaging with employers/companies/organizations in their respective fields.
