DEI Information for Employers

Due to our deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we aim to ensure that all employers who engage with Rollins College students share this same commitment.

How to Get Involved with the CCLP

Be Featured in a social media spotlight- Promote your diversity-focused recruiting programs and elevate your brand on campus by participating in Rollins College’s Instagram and Facebook social media campaigns. 

Engage in Identity-focused Presidential Receptions – Throughout the year, the Center for Inclusion and Campus Involvement, with support from the CCLP, hosts afternoon networking receptions for underrepresented student groups. This is a great time for employers to meet students and speak about your diversity efforts. 

Become a Handshake partner – Learn more about the process of connecting with Rollins College’s Handshake page so that your organization can post jobs, internships, and events for our students and alumni. Explore how we can support your recruitment efforts by visiting the Hire Rollins page. 

DEI Employer Toolkit

The purpose of this DEI Employer Toolkit is to provide a repository of recommended resources for you to explore. Each has helpful information on how to uphold and actively support diversity, equity, and inclusion in your organization. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list, nor are these internal Rollins College resources.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Professional Standards

  • NACE's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
    • "The drive toward diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and social justice is an ongoing process and requires us to identify and address both unintended/intended and visible/invisible barriers arising from bias, discrimination, racism, and organizational structures that support such attitudes and actions."
  • The Bias of "Professionalism" Standards (SSIR)
    • "The implicit and at times explicit belief that white, Western, English speakers are more competent than everyone else is common in white-majority and Western countries. It affects everything from hiring and promoting to managing and firing."
  • Getting Over Your Fear of Talking About Diversity (Harvard Business Review)
    • "Learning to speak up about diversity is uncomfortable — but it’s critical for leaders who want to build inclusive workplaces. To get over your fears, ask the right questions, read up on books and other resources that will help you better understand your marginalized colleagues, and learn to embrace the discomfort of talking about and tackling tough issues."
  • Questions to Ask Yourself About Hiring and Workplace Bias (SHRM)
    • "According to Deloitte's 2019 State of Inclusion Survey, 64% of workers surveyed 'felt they had experienced bias in their workplaces during the last year and of those, 61% felt they experienced bias in the workplace at least once a month.'"
  • Beyond Diversity: Becoming a Culturally Competent Organization (Ivey Business Journal)
    • "There is actually a way of “getting” diversity right and for an organization this requires the same high standards of preparation, intensity and implementation as any other business initiative. As this author describes, one of Canada’s leading financial institutions got it right, and in the process set a best-practice example."

Identity-Based Resources

Here you can explore resources and articles geared toward supporting the employment process of job seekers who identify as a member of a specific group. Remember that none of these groups are monoliths and each person's life experience is different. We highlight these resources to help expose organizations and employers to the potential lived experiences of students and job-seekers. Use these resources as tools to learn more.
