One session for 60 minutes can put you back on track.

LinkedIn Learning March Challenge: Celebrating Women

Did you know you receive free access to LinkedIn Learning as a UI student? LinkedIn Learning is an online training library that provides access to thousands of online courses on productivity, web design, graphic design, photography, programming, coding, and more. All you have to do to get started is log in with your HawkID!

March 8th is International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. In some countries, the entire month of March is declared Women’s History Month to highlight the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.

This month, to honor women inside and outside of the workplace, LinkedIn Learning has launched a March Challenge, kicking off March 9th. Through short videos throughout the month, you’ll explore gender bias, its impact, and how to support & empower women at work.

Challenge yourself to participate every day –each one takes ~5 minutes or less. To keep yourself on track, try keeping a journal or print the calendar and initial each day when you’ve completed it.

Happy learning!

In one word…What does it mean to be Black in Business?

Black in business

To work with a diverse group of people, you have to first take the time and effort to understand and respect each person on the team and what they bring to the table.

Being Black in Business — Noella Kabula

Meet Noella Kabula. Let’s see what Noella has to say about what it means to be black in business:

“I consider being black in business a journey. Where it has its ups and downs because it can be challenging and difficult to fit in as a minority. At the same time that challenge is necessary because it allows me to step out of my comfort zone and succeed.”

Being Black in Business — Morgan Conrard

Meet Morgan Conrard. Here are Morgan’s thoughts on what it means to be black in business:

“I’d say creative. You gotta be able to maneuver your way through things. And sometimes that, that means you have to do unorthodox things to get you to where your goals and objectives are. I’ve been blessed for that to be an opportunity and it’s opened a lot of doors for me to pave my way to my goals.”

Being Black in Business — Deb Destahun

Meet Deb Destahun. Here are her thoughts on what it means to be black in business:

Unveiled. You have more self-awareness of how people view you and how the skills you maintain and the way you act will be viewed by others. Some people are going to dismiss your qualifications and think you got something just because you are diverse. Using diversity as a scapegoat is a defense mechanism, a veil. It is not my job to correct their rationalization, but at the same time, you can’t help wanting to protect yourself from it.”
