Creating a fulfilling life is a lot harder for them!
Over 1 million queer youth will graduate next year. A majority will choose less fulfilling jobs or be forced to give up on their aspirations.
Q+ youth will prioritize their mental health & safety even if that means they have to take less paying jobs or change careers if they perceive the workplace may not be welcoming or safe. We are on a mission to change that. See how:
Our work towards Q+ Equality
We work with inclusive employers that have made DEI a core value and a commitment to hiring LGBTQ+ youth. Each day, opportunities for queer youth grow as more companies earn the Q+ Workplace designation.
Being a Q+ Workplace send a message to LGBTQ+ youth that the organization values them and is working to create early career opportunities to help the Q+ workforce of tomorrow grow their human potential.
Large organizations spend millions on making their workplaces inclusive. Many small and medium sized businesses do not have the money, resources or knowhow to make their workplace authentically inclusive to LGBTQ+ people. Working with DEI partners, we help them achieve this at a fraction of the cost.
We work with companies of all sizes and in various industries to create breath of job opportunities for Q+ youth.
Each Q+ Workplace has designated “Equality Ambassadors” who are are there to help during the interview process and be a mentor for incoming employees. These progressive organizations, and especially the Equality Ambassadors, provide new employees the opportunity to make social connections, get a lay of the land, and prepare them to serve as a mentor in the future.
Help us create more career opportunities for Q+ youth and work towards Q+ Equality
Working with Colleges & Universities
We partner with Offices of Student Engagement and various student-led organizations that promote queer youth welfare to spread the word that we are here to help. Through these channels, we are able to make referrals to existing businesses that are Q+ Workplaces and have open job opportunities. Additionally, we partner with Alumni associations to foster the same connections for those that have graduated in the past 24-months.
