Redefining The Narrative of Global Classrooms and Careers Through Expat Mentorship

With the clear disparity of diverse representation in global classrooms and careers, first-generation students and students of color lack resources and roadmaps to study and thrive abroad. Through mentor-focused programs with expat communities of colors, students are able to engage with professionals who have experienced studying, working, and living abroad. By the end of this session, attendees will be able to reshape the narrative of the post-graduate impact of studying abroad as well as design mentor-focused programs for a diverse student body.
