First Generation Network bridges the personal and professional gap for first generation college graduates-turned-professionals. Why? While 30% of incoming college freshmen are first generation college students, only 11% of them will graduate within six years. Those of us who become professionals continue to face new challenges — from building social capital and robust networks to overcoming stigma and rising the ranks to leadership — while feeling more isolated and unrepresented in our background.
