Upcoming UWAA Panel Sessions this Fall

The Career & Internship Center and the University of Washington Alumni Association are proud to co-host a series of Alumni Panels throughout the 2021-22 academic year. Each quarter, we will engage UW alumni to speak on their expertise in the following broad themes: Careers with Impact, Identity in the Workplace, & Innovation in Action. During Fall 2021, we’re excited to offer the following sessions, where students will be able to hear tips, experiences, insights and recommendations from 2-4 UW alumni. Each panel discussion will start as a moderated panel, and then move into an open Q&A with the audience. Most of our sessions throughout the year will not be recorded, so we look forward to “seeing” our participants virtually, in real-time. October 6th, 4:00pm – 5:00pm: Non-Tech in Tech

  • The tech industry is booming and Seattle is home to many rapidly growing tech organizations that require a broad range of skill sets and roles to operate. If you’re interested in working within the technical industry, but you’re not in a technical major, join us as we hear and learn from University of Washington alums currently working in the Seattle tech industry. This panel will feature the following alumni:
  • Panelists:
    • Daniel Barkley, ’17, Program Manager, Early in Career Internships, Microsoft *Moderator*
    • Sam Ridout, ’14, Executive Assistant, Amazon
    • Sarah Carr, ’12, People Consultant, Google
    • Channing Nesbitt, ’18, Social Impact Program Manager, Tableau

November 3rd, 4:00pm – 5:00pm: Evaluating an Organization’s Commitment to DEI

  • It can be really difficult to get-to-know an organization’s commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion before and during the interview process. Join us as we hear and learn from University of Washington alumni who are currently working to create inclusive working environments within their organizations. They will provide tips and strategies to help prepare you for your own reflection and research as you seek a position! More details on panelists coming soon!
