Join Wayfair’s head of culture and inclusion KeyAnna Schmiedl; senior manager of diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy Zalika Winitzer; and head of creative and employer branding AJ Rebecchi for a deep dive into the DEI initiatives at Wayfair.

During this panel, the speakers will discuss what roles equity and inclusion play in the recruiting process and professional development and will highlight some of the resource groups sparking change for employees, including Accessiblity@Work, Latin@Work, WayBlack, South Asian Community, Women@Work, and Wayout, which offers resources tailored for members of the LGBTQIA community. After the panel, SCAD students and alumni can chat with speakers and ask them questions about their personal and professional experiences relating to equity and inclusion.

Students are encouraged to submit questions in advance. Those interested in hosting a CATALYST episode can also share their ideas through the interest form.

CATALYST is a series of conversational interviews sponsored by the office for career and alumni success that helps students shape the world around them by spotlighting real companies and their journey — both the success and struggles — to a more inclusive, equitable workplace. CATALYST also offers students the unique opportunity to ask questions directly to and brainstorm action steps with professionals from the art and design world.
