Diversity in the Workplace Resources for Students

Use this page to search for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion resources recommended by the Center for Career and Life Planning for students and job-seekers. 

We recognize that singling certain groups out as representations of a diverse workforce can have an "othering" effect on folks in communities that are historically marginalized or underserved. Our hope is that the resources on this page can be a source of support and strength to students and job-seekers, as well as an educational aid for allies in the workplace.   

The resources included below are not created or owned by Rollins College. By clicking these links, you will be sent to an external site. While the resources have been reviewed by the Center, Rollins does not retain ownership of the content or may not support all content on the site, as it may be updated without our knowledge. Come visit our Career Studio or schedule an appointment on Handshake to discuss these resources and more with a staff member!

  •  Why is it important to have not only a diverse, but also an inclusive workplace?
    • Research has shown that a sense of safety and belonging in the workplace can increase an employee's performance and intent to stay within an organization or role. The idea of what makes a team diverse has also changed over the past few years, recognizing that giving voice to diversity in culture, knowledge, and experience bring important perspectives and strength to a team.
    • Benefits of Diversity in the Workplace
  • How is diversity defined in the workplace?
    • "Diversity is a relational concept. It shows up in the composition of teams and organizations, and it is measured based on a collective whole. In this way, diversity refers to 'difference' within a given setting. So while a person is not 'diverse,' they may bring a diverse range of experiences. From appearance to thought, likes or dislikes, and identity. Diversity of identity may relate to socialized and visible race, gender identity, religion, nationality, body shape or size, age, or sexual orientation, to name a few."
