Great To Be At The San Francisco Transgender Job Fair!
Here at Good Vibrations, we’ve always proud supporters of gender rights. In a world in which transgender people face incredibly high rates of employment discrimination, we know how important is is for genderqueer, gender non-conforming, transgender, and other gender minority folks to have a safe place to work. We were among the earliest companies to develop an official policy around gender, which was developed with input from staff across the range of gender identification and expression.
So the other day, we returned to theTrans Job Fair, Resource Fair, and Career Forum, organized by the Transgender Economic Empower Initiative and held at the San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Community Center. Over 30 employers and resource providers had tables, and met with more than 150 job seekers and community members. It’s wonderful to see how the fair has grown. More companies and organizations support transgender rights than ever. Hopefully, they all will, someday.
The next job fair is on Wednesday, October the 17th, 2012. TEEI is joining forces with the LGBT Center in New York City for the nation’s first Bi-Coastal LGBT Job Fair . If you would like to learn more and/or reserve space for the October event, visit TEEI for info.
