Where the Identity & Diversity Concentration Will Take You
The indentity and diversity studies concentration is interested, above all, in analyzing the changing status of various identities over time and space. You will develop critical thinking skills as well as a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the world. That leads to better communication; management; diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) education; and general people skills, setting you up to be a good teammate, leader, and manager.
The analytical, collaboration, and reflective thinking skills you develop help prepare you for careers in all fields, but especially consulting, diversity and inclusion, leadership, primary and higher education, healthcare, hospitality, and the arts. Ideally, because you will have an understanding of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, and how shifts in the world can affect a variety of social groups, you have the skills to pivot industries during a crisis, shift your career goals with ease, and make tough, informed decisions that will benefit your place of work.
