Broader Professional Development Opportunities

Many graduating students feel that their undergraduate careers and jobs do not provide enough opportunities for professional development. I want to work with administration to promote more on- and off-campus jobs that promote the fostering of these highly-demanded professional skills. Also, I plan to work with current employers to better cater to the needs of their student employees through professional development initiatives and workshops.

*As of October 27th, 2013
  • Requested funding to create job positions that will work on educating individuals on philanthropy.  The program I am creating is called the “Philanthropic Professional Empowerment Initiative,” the goal is to provide students from underrepresented or marginalized communities the chance to build skills in grant writing and fundraising.  The funds created will be distributed to a scholarship fund known as the Berkeley Student Foundation that is set to serve communities of underrepresented and marginalized communities.    
  • Brainstorming a potential a Students of Color Business Conference that will discuss issues that people of color run into in the business world and why it is important for people of these communities to represented in the business world.
  • Connecting with the Career Center to streamline resources to student workers.

*More information on this project will be updated as soon as possible.
