The Job Search from an LGBTQ+ Inclusive Lens
Tuesday, December 10, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

For all college students pursing one’s first job, internship, or other professional opportunity can be daunting. Writing a resume, interviewing, and finding a good fit in the workplace are challenges we all have faced. The LGBTQ+ population of college students is one that, like many other underrepresented groups, have even greater challenges in finding meaningful professional opportunities and strong organizational fit. As data from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) shows, despite all the strides over the past decade that the LGBTQ+ community has made towards equal rights, there is still much work to be done to make workplaces and the hiring process more inclusive. 

This webinar will teach you advising strategies and provide you resources to support this population of students. We will review: state and federal protections for sexual orientation and gender identity, the Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for LGBTQ+ inclusiveness, the value of employee resource groups, and the A Workplace Divided article. Participation is strongly encouraged. There will be an opportunity for participants to submit questions, comments, and advice from their own experiences at the conclusion of the webinar.
