As a student, faculty, affiliate of USC, as people – we all are undeniably living in proximity to social injustices perpetuated by institutions. Our job, no matter what our identity, is to listen to the experiences of those disadvantaged under these institutions. Join three brilliant panelists that have traversed predominantly white institutions (academic and non-academic) to learn what is in their toolkit and how they define success.

She has designed and facilitated inclusive academic programs for students at the University of Florida, University of Michigan, and the University of Washington.

Tigist received her Bachelors in Psychology from Washington State University and is currently completing her Masters in Business Administration there as well. She is an immigrant from Ethiopia and understands firsthand the struggles of being a first generation college student.
