“One of the great things about these roles is that there is not just one path to landing one. That is, all degrees are welcome. Also, experience is not just ones you get paid for. So get involved in spaces that center DEIBJ, even if they are not currently a part of your job. What matters most is a track record of authenticity, commitment, and achievement in DEIBJ, zealous advocacy, being a communicator and collaborator, demonstrated internal and external leadership, and administrative and interpersonal effectiveness. ”
