About This Session
The workforce is constantly changing. When it comes to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) young people, there is much to understand in being successful with workforce recruitment and retention efforts. Follow along as Campus Pride's Executive Director, Shane Windmeyer, shares how to gain an understanding of today's LGBTQ young people and how they impact workforce outreach, and learn about key LGBTQ issues that positively impact your diversity efforts to attract the best employees. Attendees will also leave this session with the ability to find resources available to reach LGBTQ young people and diverse future employees.
