A great benefit of joining the Tulane MJ-LEL network of scholars is the relationships that encourage honest collaboration. Classmates report that they are more reserved within local SHRM (Society for Human Resources Management) chapters. These chapters are often filled with professionals who compete for one another's jobs or who gossip about industry competition, etc. A SHRM chapter may even include ex-colleagues, and imposter-syndrome abounds!
Since the Tulane network is comprised of individuals representing various industries across many states, many of us report feeling a greater sense of freedom and less vulnerability when asking about the stuff we aren't so sure about. Our students are more open about knowledge gaps, and we aren't afraid to ask questions that expose our weaknesses.
