On Feb. 17, IC’s Office of Career Services hosted an Intercultural Career Connections program, a virtual TED-talk style panel featuring alumni Lia Muñoz ’16, Ahmad Boyd ’16 and Tanya Hutchins ’89.
The program allows alumni of color to engage with students in focused dialogue about their post-graduate career experiences. This year’s topic, “How Do I Move Forward Now?” gave participants a chance to share the personal and career challenges they’ve faced due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event was sponsored by the Office of Career Services, Office of State Grants, and the Center for IDEAS.
Muñoz shared how the pandemic caused her to make a career change. This past January, she transitioned from her role as IC’s assistant director of new student and transition programs to a new position as a college counselor at Rochester Prep High School.
