Event Description: 

Affinity Reception Tuesday, October 2, 2018 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Gordon Field House The objective of the Affinity Reception is to bring together RIT special interest affinity groups and employers who are committed to recruiting a diverse and talented workforce. This will prove critical in the success of global businesses now and in the future. Typically the event last about two hours and gives students an opportunity to talk with employers prior to the career fair. Student groups will set up tables, and employers will walk around and interact with students. (It’s almost like a reverse career fair) Some of the groups that attend include: American Indian Science & Engineering Society (AISES), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Saunders Multicultural Business Association (SMBA), Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), Women in Engineering (WE@rit), Women in Technology (WIT), Women in Computing (WIC) and others. In addition, this year students representing the Neurodiverse Hiring Initiative (NHI) will be in attendance. This event will truly represent diversity at RIT. This event is of no charge.
