Shared Identity

As a member of the Wellesley Community, you possess an identity that is shared across our student and alumnae network. This identity ties you together in a network as you experience life here on campus, and as you pursue your career pathways beyond.

Intersecting Identities

While your identity as a student or alumna connects you to our community, you also possess a rich intersection of diverse identities that will influence and guide your career aspirations, choices, and achievements. These identities equip you with unique strengths and perspectives that will support your career success, but they may also present you with significant challenges on your career pathway. 

Capitalizing on Strengths, and Navigating Challenges

The way that you view yourself and develop your career interests across multiple identities, including the skills you build from navigating challenges, give you profound strengths that will support you in the face of difficulties and challenges along your career pathways.
