Let's Eliminate the Income Inequality Faced by Them.

Over the next decade, at least 12 million LGBTQ+ students in the U.S. will earn degrees and enter the workforce. As things stand, on average each will earn $150,000 less than their non-queer peers. Given the mental, social and logistical challenges these students face, the majority will not achieve their true potential. Together, we can solve this.


LGBTQ+ graduates earn 22% less than their hetrosexual counterparts a decade after graduation. We’re on a mission to change that!

Hardships faced by LGBTQ+ people:


change their behavior at work to deflect attention from their stigmatized traits.


have experienced discrimination when applying for jobs.


of trans people are unemployed or underemployed.​


Growing network of Queer-inclusive Workplaces

Our team strives to find employers that have committed to intentionally include LGBTQ+ graduates in their diversified talent pool. With each day, opportunities for the coming generations of queer & transgender students grow, as more and more companies earn the Q+ Workplace designation.


Providing support to students and Universities

Connecting students with work opportunities at authentically inclusive companies, thereby laying the foundation for them to feel safe and comfortable at work every day. We partner with colleges & universities that have programs focused on LGBTQ+ student success. Together we empower these students to create a better future for themselves.

Let’s break down the mental, social, and logistical barriers for queer youth and create Q+ Equality.


Creating Equal Opportunities

The work Q+ Equality Foundation does each day stops queer students from taking less fulfilling jobs simply because they would like to “just fit in” or “hide” there. Instead, working with business leaders and progressive organizations, we empower and support the next generation of LGBTQ+ students and professionals by providing resources, education, and opportunities for personal and professional growth.
