Thank you for registering for the Communities of Color Roundtable Networking Event!


The offices of Career Services and Leadership Management, Development and Alumni Relations, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Columbia School of Social Work are excited to host our 2nd annual Communities of Color Roundtable Networking Event on Monday, September 16, 2019 at CSSW!

Please join us for a fun evening of mingling with some of our distinguished alumni of color from various concentrations and careers. This will be a great opportunity to expand both your knowledge base and network of contacts within a safe and supportive community, whether you are seeking to learn about potential career paths or hear their unique perspectives, insights, and advice as professionals of color in the field. The list of featured alumni can be found here.

Event Details:

  • Date: Monday, September 16, 2019
  • Time: 6:00 – 9:00 pm (Check in at 6:00 pm; main event at 6:30 pm)
    Note: Students who arrive after 6:30 pm will not be allowed entry
  • Location: Columbia School of Social Work, 1255 Amsterdam Avenue, Rooms 311/312, New York, NY 10027
  • Suggested attire: business casual

What to Expect:

RESIDENTIAL STUDENTS: The event will be similar to that of “speed-networking.” After a 30-minute panel featuring select alumni guests, students will have the opportunity to meet with individual alumni at designated tables and engage in two rounds of 30-minute group conversations. Following the two rounds, there will be 30 minutes of informal, open networking to provide students and alumni additional time to connect with one another.

ONLINE STUDENTS: You will have the opportunity to view a 30-minute introductory panel featuring select alumni guests and then network virtually with alumni via Zoom.

All those who identify as students of color are welcome to participate!

Please RSVP by Wednesday, September 11.

***Space is limited so we ask that you only register for yourself and only if you are able to attend. When registering, use your Columbia email and enter your name using standard capitalization, e.g. "First Last" -- the information will be used to create your name tags. Thank you.***
