Panel Discussion: Alumni Workplace Engagement - Building Bridges Between Your Alumni, Where They Work, and Your Institution
Wednesday, January 20th, 2021 2:00 - 3:30 pm ET
Imagine a bridge that connects three “islands”: a university, a company, and employees of that company who are graduates of the university. Rutgers Alumni Workplace Engagement is that bridge. It creates thriving relationships so that these areas are no longer islands but powerful partners for innovation and achievement.
Moving beyond traditional models of alumni engagement, the Rutgers AWE program brings the university to a business and its employees—in their workplace. This specific webinar will feature the director of the Rutgers AWE program alongside alumni leaders from JPMorgan Chase and Bristol-Myers Squibb, who describe the program’s challenges and accomplishments so far.
You’re invited to learn about four pillars of success that enable this initiative to broaden opportunities for corporate partnerships, individual alumni engagement, and philanthropic projects across all academic units.
