Join the Center for Social Justice and the Different Abilities Rope Team as we celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities by hosting Jessica Lopez, a full-time student and advocate, on Thursday, November 30 at 3 p.m.
Born without hands and feet, Lopez draws upon her own experiences to champion the inclusiveness and accessibility in educational institutions and workforces. As a full-time student and the corporate training consultant at the Center for Disability, she works to interrupt the stereotypes we often hear and believe about people with disabilities.
This event is open to Excelsior students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
Join us for the first webinar in the LinkedIn Professional Development series on Thursday, November 30, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. ET. This presentation will be led Miriam Dushane, managing partner for Alaant Workforce Solutions, in partnership with Excelsior’s Office of Development and Alumni Engagement.
Alaant is the next generation of Linium Recruiting, which Dushane launched in 2006 and built into a powerhouse. In 2018, she rebranded the business as Alaant, broadening its expertise and resources to expand into two innovative practice areas – Employer Brand Strategy and Talent Acquisition Partnerships – that enable employers to build motivated, high-performing workforces for long-term success. Dushane is responsible for oversight of all operations, including recruitment efforts, business development, complete P&L, and employee management, and under her leadership, Alaant has placed more than 4,000 top professionals with over 400 companies.
Dushane specializes in recruitment, employee relations, and training and development. She is guided by two central tenets: always do the right thing over turning a profit, and lead by example.
LinkedIn 101 will cover topics including how to create your profile, how to network, and how to conduct a job search.
