Reminder: Tune in Monday at Noon for HRC’s ‘Entering the Workforce’ Panel

Are you a young LGBT person looking to enter the workforce? Join HRC for a live stream panel discussion Monday on how to navigate today’s job market as a young lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender applicant.

As part of HRC’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities­ (HBCU) Leadership and Career Summit kicking off this weekend, HRC will be hosting “Generation Equality: Entering the Workforce, a Twitter Town Hall” on Monday, November 4 at 12:00pm.

Moderated by the Center for American Progress’ Senior Fellow Aisha Moodie-Mills, the event will feature a panel of experts addressing widely held LGBT concerns such as ‘coming out’ on a resume, understanding corporate dress code policies, raising money for graduate school, and much more.

Panelists will include:

  • Carolyn Brown, Editor-At-Large of Black Enterprise Magazine
  • Margaret Okada, Assistant Director of Admission at Teachers College, Columbia University
  • Kandice Fields, Mechanical Engineer at W.L. Gore and Associates
  • Deena Fidas, Director of Workplace Equality Program at Human Rights Campaign
  • Noël Gordon, Recent Graduate and Scholar: Point Foundation, Harry S. Truman Foundation, Gilman Foundation
  • Patrice Pluto, Director of Operations at PepsiCo North America Beverages
