One of the important life tasks many LGBTI students face is coming out. The workplace can be one environment where LGBTI persons are fearful about bullying and abuse, either physically or emotionally. Although many LGBTI students may choose to be open about their identity to other people, a substantial number of those choose not to disclose their identity status in the workplace.
If you have questions or concerns about being out on your resume, in the interview, or in the workplace, please stop by the Tulane Career Center to speak with a Career Coach or visit The Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity on campus.
