Yoga: A Brand New You

With all that comes with college life whether it be academically, socially, or emotionally it can be hard to let go of all the pressure. There is a constant battle to maintain our mental health. One way to relieve all this stress is yoga and meditation. Yoga can help you recenter your energy, rejuvenate your mind, relieve anxiety, improve sleep quality, and provide a better quality of life. One session for 60 minutes can put you back on track.

Come join the Black in Business team and learn how to connect your mind, body, and spirit with yoga (yoga mats optional). RSVP using the link  so we know who to expect: https://forms.gle/mH4MnFmhUq8vmrs97

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. During Black History Month, we asked our Black students “What does it mean to be Black in business?” Read their full responses here: https://bit.ly/306v6f3

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.”

Being Black in Business — Neah Howlett

Meet Neah Howlett. Let’s take a look at what she has to say about what it means to be black in business:

Perseverance. Being Black in business you don’t have a ton of support and you also don’t have a lot of role models to look up to. So it’s kind of like you’re doing it on your own. It’s all worth it in the end though because you know that you will be a role model for another Black student who’s coming into the business world and they need somebody to look up to. And they can say, ‘Hey, if they can do it, I can do it.’”

Being Black in Business — Kethia Mulongo

What does it meant to be black in business? Let’s see what Kethia Mulongo has to say:

Opportunity. Seeing the difference in the room, the lack of black people in the business world. Where I don’t see a lot of people who look like me, who don’t have the same identity. Opening a room or creating a positive thing where you see a lot of black people in the business world. I could use that as an opportunity to create a business for me and for people like me.”

Being Black in Business — Lewis Howard

Meet Jacob Lewis Howard. Here is what being black in business means to him:

Adaptable. To be Black in Business you have to choose and wear so many different hats depending on the situation. You can’t take yourself so seriously that you’re seen as aggressive and overly dominant, trying to take over. You can’t be so whimsical and carefree that you’re viewed as lazy. It’s about striking the middle balance, depending on the situation. It’s about being adaptable. To be able to show yourself through your adaptations. Being able to grow a community around you and to adapt to that community.”

Being Black in Business — Baaba Saisie

Meet Baaba Saisie, the first of many Tippie students that will be sharing their unfiltered thoughts on what it means to be Black in business. Here is what she has to say:

Inspiring. Being Black in business is inspiring because it encourages people to pursue success in places that seem unattainable.

Courage. It takes courage to be in a field of unfamiliar faces. At times, I feel discouraged by the lack of people I can relate to. It also takes courage to be in a competitive field where my color may be put into account concerning my skills. Despite the challenges, I know that with courage, I can achieve anything despite my skin color.”
