The panelists took the opportunity to speak to students about professional development along with introducing students to each of their diverse programs. Each program offered students one-on-one mentoring, workshops, coaching and internships for extensive career development. Panelists emphasized the fact that these programs offer students belonging to diverse backgrounds with career opportunities for future development.
