Mannequins with meaning
Dr. Cheryl Moore, executive director of Career Development, and her team have been striving to create a space inside Alverno's Career Studio that engages students in not only career aspirations but personal growth.
This academic year, they revealed the arrival of a new mannequin to join another - known on campus as Ali Schall. The newest mannequin, provided by Kohl's, has a visible scar on her hand "to represent every story, every setback, every struggle, every pain and every success of an Alverno College Strong Woman," Dr. Moore notes.
Career Studio staff have been working to expand representation of our Beloved Alverno community by showcasing fashion mannequins of different sizes, shapes, and skin tones.
The Career Boutique invites students to prepare themselves professionally and personally, offering free clothing as they grow during their Alverno journey.
