LGBT+ Careers Event

LGBT+ Careers Event – an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion collaboration with the Essex LGBT+ Alliance, Employability and Careers and the Students’ Union.

This now annual event offers LGBT+ students and staff a chance to hear from LGBT+ staff and students and their experiences in finding a job and then how they managed to be authentic in the workplace.

A panel of LGBT+ speakers from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, Ford Motor Company Ltd,  Essex County Council, LGBT+ staff and students from UoE will give an insight into what it means to apply for a job as an LGBT+ person.   There will then be a session where delegates can ask the speakers questions in an informal setting.  Afternoon tea will then be available giving everyone the opportunity to network with peers and several employers from the Essex LGBT+ Alliance.

This event is aimed at all of the University community, not just LGBT+ staff and students as we realise that many staff and students have friends or family who are LGBT+ and who may need advice and support on finding employment when they leave school or university.
