Call for Alumni:
As part of GLBT History Month, we are looking to host an Out in the Workplace discussion. This discussion would provide alumni an opportunity to talk about the workplace experience and identifying as being a part of the GLBT community. Through this event, current students would sit down with alumni and other members of the campus community to share their experiences and helpful tips to being comfortable while at work. If you are interested in participating, please contact us. The date and time is still TBD.
