GenEQ Guide to Entering the Workforce

Produced by the HRC Foundation

Entering the workforce is a rite of passage for many Americans. This rite involves unique challenges for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans because there is no federal law that prohibits workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity and expression.

The GenEQ Guide to Entering the Workforce was created to help LGBTQ+ young people make the transition to the workplace. Purposeful planning can help you navigate the decisions you’ll make during the job search, such as finding employment policies and inclusive benefits, finalizing resume content, devising interview strategies and networking.
