    Would you like to increase your understanding of the challenges your LGBTQ students face? Do you struggle with differentiating between the terms sexual orientation and gender identity? Can you benefit from having additional strategies to recommend when advising your LGBTQ students?

    Assist your students in their exploration of whether being out in the workplace is important to them as it relates to their job search. Learn about the challenges that LGBTQ students face when determining what information should be included on their resume, cover letter, and throughout the interview process.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Articulate and differentiate between sexual orientation and gender identity;
    • Use effective strategies to confidently advise students on ways to incorporate LGBTQ activities on resumes, in cover letters, and throughout the interview process;
    • Recognize challenges students will face by being out in the workplace and become better equipped to advise LGBTQ students.

    How You Will Learn
    During this one-hour webinar, the presenter will deliver a synchronized audio and PowerPoint presentation. Participants will have time for live Q&A throughout the program and may be asked to contribute opinions or feedback via live chat, virtual polling, and other mechanisms.
