LGBTQ+ Students

Here at the University of Washington Career and Internship Center, we 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 indigenous 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, such “will I be supported as a transgender or non binary person within this company?” “what types of support (affinity groups, for example) will I need from my employer?” or “will I be able to speak outwardly about my partner/s and family at my workplace?” 

The Career and Internship Center is a place where you can navigate these questions, bring your full self, and find resources to utilize when entering the workforce.
