Friday, October 6, 2023 | 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Josey Dining Room
9% of LGBTQ employees have left a job because the environment was unwelcoming, according to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). In a Harvard survey of LGBTQ folks, 20% of respondents reported experiencing discrimination when applying for positions. Attend this Open Dialogue to hear from Queer folks about their experience navigating the job search and workplace as a young professional. Recommendations and resources will be shared to support folxs as they go out into the world. Allies, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend to learn how to better support their LGBTQIA+ friends, students and advisees. Learn more about the Open Dialogue series here.
