LGBTQ+ Students

Here at the University of Washington Career and Internship Center work hard to support students from all backgrounds including those that come to the University of Washington that have lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, Polyamorous, Pansexual, Intersex, Aromantic, Asexual, 2 Spirit (or other native and indiginous informed identity), and or many identity intersections that you may come to us with. 

While there are many laws that prohibit discrimination based on gender or sexuality, there are still many questions and concerns that the UW community may have when navigating the job search. Questions like “will I be supported as a transgender or non binary person within this company?” or “will I be able to speak outwardly about my partner/s and family at my workplace?” 

The Career and Internship Center will be a place where you can navigate these questions as well as find resources that you can utilize when entering the workforce and bringing your full self during your time here and when you leave the University. 

You may also benefit from connecting with UW’s Q Center.
