WORKING: Race & Resumes

As you’re crafting your resume, you’ll likely include awards, professional associations, and civic activities, among other items. What do those things reveal about you? Perhaps your race or ethnicity, your religion, or even your sexual orientation.

There is conflicting advice about whether to include such things on your resume, so we ask our career guy Brandon Smith what to include and what to leave out.

Brandon Smith teaches about leadership, communication, and workplace culture at Emory University's Goizueta Business School. More of his advice is on his blog and at While you’re there, ask him your workplace or career question. We might use your question on a future radio segment.
