Innovations in career guidance in higher education  have shifted from consulting towards  building networking communities, ecosystems, and social mobility (Dey & Cruzvergara, 2019). However, colleges and universities buy and large, do not have a robust model to support this change. We fill this gap.

What you get out of our workshop suite?

Our workshops train Black and Brown graduate students on how to design an academic to industry playbook, how to increase their "network effect" in domains that are most significantly tied to opportunities during and post degree attainment. And finally, we help them get the most out of mentorship relationships and supports within the university and beyond. 

Establish Success Blueprint  – Increase knowledge on success domains for graduate students

and conduct a gap analysis through a culturally responsive lens. Create a navigational playbook for success.
