The Multiple (Eye)dentity Series is comprised of films, performances and speakers that showcase the ways in which art and media are platforms for creating dialogue, sharing personal narratives, exploring issues of identity and diversity, and encouraging activism and social change.
Through our Making It In Series, CMEP provides opportunities to engage with current professionals across a number of diverse fields. These industry veterans share how diversity and their social identities have impacted their careers while offering job/internship suggestions and career advice. The Making It In Media Program is done in conjunction with the Wasserman Center for Career Development
