‘Humans of Ross’ Photo Exhibit Gives Voices to Diversity Experiences
“Diversity is giving voice to issues of the greater community.”
This sentiment along with several others will be on display in the Ross Winter Garden this week, as part of a #HumansOfRoss photography campaign. The event highlights the diversity of the Ross community and the importance of embracing that diversity in the classroom, at the workplace, and in society.
The week is highlighted by a diversity-focused case competition sponsored by Intel. Students will have an opportunity to manage and help solve a real-life diversity issue in the workplace, provide recommendations to Intel, and engage companies and students in a discussion about diversity issues. The competition kicks off on Feb. 12 at noon. Learn more and register.
Events kick off early next week and run through Feb. 14. Check out the complete list and registration links below.
