The Alumni of Emerson initiative is to showcase the careers, experiences, and insights of Emerson alumni and how their identity intersects i

The genesis of this campaign started with Women of Emerson in 2017, created by a past career counselor, Jessica Chance (Class of 2000). The reason was to highlight the careers and experiences of woman-identifying alum and how their identity intersects.

After some years, PRIDE of Emerson came to be in 2022, alongside Emerson Pride: Careering Authentically. As its sister series, PRIDE of Emerson focus on the LGBTQIA+ community. Later in 2022, Mi Gente de Emerson was developed to spotlight Latino/a/e/x alumni.

In 2023, the Career Development Center continues to expand through Soul of Emerson to showcase Emerson’s Black & African American alums.
