Activating Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion have always been important topics, but recent events have fueled the urgency for change on a systemic level. To contribute to these much needed developments we, with the support of our advisors, decided to focus this month on supporting professionals in taking inclusive action.

The School of Becoming is a learning platform focused on purpose-driven professional development, dedicated to supporting you through donation-based classes led by TED(x) speakers, professors, and industry experts. Whether your goal is personal or professional development, our curated programming can help you grow in purposeful ways.
