Save the date: Out at Work Panel Discussion and Professional Meet and Greet October 11 from 11-2 in HUB 145

The QFSUW, OMA/D, Q Center, and Career Center would like to invite you to the 2012 Out at Work Panel. This year’s event will be taking place on National Coming Out Day, October 11, from 11-2 in HUB 145. In addition to our annual panel discussion, we will be hosting a professional meet and greet for students to gain experience in professional networking and to chat with potential employers in the Seattle area. For those who are interested, the Career Center will be offering a networking workshop that week in preparation for the event. Please email your name and I will ensure you get final details once they are available.

The purpose of the event is to provide our students with an opportunity to look forward towards establishing a career and to make informed choices about being out in the work place. Our intention is to expose students to established professionals who can provide insight about their experiences and advice about how to navigate professional life and the pitfalls that exist in a heteronormative society which employs members of the LGBTQ community.

We are extremely excited about this year’s panelists and about the employers who will be present to chat with students!
