The Greene Center Employer Challenge!!

Challenge brings together School of Arts & Sciences and Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences students from a variety of disciplines to brainstorm solutions to a employer-generated problem that is timely, impactful, and of value to the organization in a week-long challenge.

Students will gain work-ready skills and competencies sought after by employers including teamwork, problem-solving, and communication!

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top teams!

Employer: First American Equipment Finance (FAEF)

Topic: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) (specific challenge statement to be provided at kick-off) Students will propose innovative solutions to address the underrepresentation of diverse employees in our workforce. The goal is to create strategies that foster inclusivity, attract more diverse candidates, minimize unconscious bias, and retain employees.

By registering, students commit to the following:

• Attend the Kick-Off Event on Friday, March 22nd, 3-5PM (Rettner 307)
