In this edition we highlight amazing employers, LGBTQ+ Professionals Facebook Group and more!
OMG! Check out this awesome shout out from MOLOCO!
I love feeling the support and dedication from employers like MOLOCO, Discovery Education, Expel and more on their LGBTQ+ inclusion efforts. It's always important to remember inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility takes time. Start small. One hour conversations can lead to big change with consistency and openness.
I know, Facebook is a drag. But it's not all your Aunt Karen posting scary mems about the end of the world. It's home to an amazing LGBTQ+ resource. This is literally one of the few reasons I still have my Facebook account. The LGBTQ Professionals Group. Ask professional questions, get career tips, network with others from around the world and it's a safe community! I do think a majority of the people I see engaging in the group are white gay men (more diversity please), however I have seen nothing but support from the group to all of its members. Visit the group here.
