Wagner's Black Student Association hosted an event last year, "Dreadlocks in Workplace," featuring a panel that spoke to what it was like to be a black professional in the workplace and how to navigate the public service space as a person of color. This year, BSA will produce a series of panels that seek to increase understanding and foster allies in the public service world. "Headscarves in the Workplace" will highlight the intersection between being a person of color and a religiously observant (or assumed) individual.
