Learn Who We Are
"We're sitting on a goldmine of cultural fluency. The generation we are raising has more language skills and better ability to work with people different than them than any generation before."
"From the business perspective, it is paramount to have diversity of perspectives as we make decisions about the tough challenges ahead of us."
"My biggest hope for ConnextMSP is to have a strong network of mentorship and create a good pipeline for young BIPOCs to go into the many Fortune 500 companies here."
"I didn’t realize networking was so important until I tried to find a career, instead of just sitting in classes. ConnextMSP helps me make those connections."
"I would like employers in the ConnextMSP network to become more aware of the many circumstances and challenges facing young BIPOC professionals in MSP."
"I joined ConnextMSP because as a senior that's about to graduate I want to be connected to resources, jobs and internship opportunities in the region."
