Affinity/Identity

With advice and guidance from our experts within the Yale community, OCS has created seven Affinity/Identity Communities enabling students to pursue their career search within a community of peers. As you choose communities of interest, explore the relevant news, blogs and career spotlights to help you explore various career paths.

To receive regular updates from the Identity/Affinity Communities:

  • Current Yale Students and Yale Faculty/Staff: Log into the website using CAS Login (enter your Net ID and password), go to Preferences (top right corner under your name). This will allow you to customize the content of your weekly newsletter by choosing among the career communities, affinity/identity communities, and applying to graduate school communities.

Some employers may offer diversity recruitment programs aimed to address historical gaps in the workforce, and students are encouraged to research those programs to learn more.
