START AT THE BEGINNING

Joining a workplace for the first time can be daunting under even the best circumstances. Can you imagine a young persons thoughts at such a crucial stage?

Do my potential employers have an LGBTIQ+policy?

How far do I come out during the interview process?

How far do I come out during the interview process?

Should I mention my LGBTIQ+ volunteer activities on my CV?

Do I go back into the closet after I get the job?

These are some of the difficult questions that younger LGBTIQ+ people often ask themselves as they discover a career path they’ll immerse themselves in.

Recognizing this, the Foundation created the “Young@WorkplacePride” program to bridge gaps for younger LGBTIQ+ people in the workplace, but also to help employers understand how they can better communicate to this next generation of employees and future leaders.

The program has numerous activities for Workplace Pride members, ensuring that the changing world of work that we live in also takes young LGBTIQ+ people further into account.
