In support of the 2011 UW-Green Bay Common Theme -
"Celebrating Differences. Creating Community "

The goal of this year’s common theme is to present a variety of opportunities on campus for students, faculty and community members to engage in positive discussions that explore and celebrate diversity, that identify and challenge oppression, and that focus on positive steps that can be taken toward creating a more inclusive campus community.  In support of the campus common theme, Career Services has compiled a list of resources related to diversity issues in employment.  The following links will provide a wealth of information about professional associations, recruitment initiatives, job postings, employer practices, and other resources for creating diverse workplace communities.
