EACE understands that true diversity extends well beyond historical or legal definitions; it includes every aspect of being human. Be it race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic class, age, sexual orientation, gender expression, religion, physical ability, or job and life circumstance, the differences between us as individuals are the same assets that unite us as a professional community. We affirm the value of our diversity and will work to promote inclusiveness, to encourage understanding, and to celebrate our differences as well as our common threads.
EACE offers two Diversity and Inclusion Scholarships each year in memory of Rick McLellan and Ernie Andrews. These are open to bothemployers and colleges and to professionals working in the field and/or graduate students working or intending to work in the field of career services or human resources. The EACE Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship allots $1,500 per candidate. These monies can be used toward the expenses outlined below:

In addition to the above mentioned benefits, each recipient will be enrolled in the EACE Mentorship Program where he/she will be matched with a veteran EACE member who will serve as a professional mentor throughout the recipient's first year of membership. This mentor will serve as an introduction to EACE, help the recipient navigate the annual conference, and support the recipient's professional development and continued involvement with EACE.
