Getting a first job and thriving at work is hard for anyone. Doing it as a young, Queer person brings about unique challenges and opportunities for change. With this in mind, Out & Equal partnered with Bank of America to create You’re Here, You’re Queer, and You Need a Job: Mapping Your First Steps as an LGBTQ+ Gen Zer at Work.
The user-friendly toolkit includes:
- tips and strategies for understanding the professional world for those newly entering it;
- specific ways for applicants to find and determine which organizations are more likely to be supportive of LGBTQ+ Gen Z talent;
- tactics that new employees can use to navigate their new workplaces; and
- strategies that new employees can leverage to chart and implement workplace success, including learning how to leverage intergenerational power and influence.
While every Queer person’s path to professional success will be different, the policies outlined in this toolkit can be leveraged by Gen Zers, no matter how they identify.Download the Toolkit
