Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging Resources
We recognize the systemic barriers that students face and to that end we are focused on approaching student communities and developing programming through the lens of their identity. Our work at the intersection of identity and career development is to ensure that students from all backgrounds and experiences, seen and unseen, feel heard and supported as they take the next steps in their career journey.

Accommodations During the Hiring Process
Applying for jobs can be stressful for anyone, but for a student with a disability--whether visible or invisible, there are added layers of complexity. Should you disclose? Should you ask for accommodations during the hiring process?
Alumni Spotlights is a series of features that provides advice from alumni of a variety of backgrounds and experiences.
Disability Equality Index
The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and Disability: IN, a nonprofit organization that advises businesses on how to achieve disability inclusion and equality. It was originally developed by an advisory committee made up of a mix of business leaders, policy experts, and disability advocates, with the goal of creating “a national, transparent, annual benchmarking tool that offers businesses an opportunity to receive an objective score, on a scale of 0 to 100, on their disability inclusion policies and practices.”
The FLI Office was established as a stand-alone office in 2018. Previously, we were housed under the Diversity and First-Gen office, which was established in 2011.
We have over 2,500 alumni, many of whom identify as being part of an underrepresented community. Explore our diversity mentoring groups to get started.

Stories from Work
Stories from Work is a collection of videos highlighting discrimination, inequity, and other forms of injustice in the work place. At CareerEd, our goal is to prepare students for life after Stanford. A powerful way to do this is to share real stories of conflict, learning, acceptance, and growth from Stanford alumni, students, CareerEd staff, and others.
