Case Western Reserve University consistently ranks among the nation's top universities in such publications as U.S. News & World Report. It is also one of the most LGBT-friendly campuses in the country, regularly scoring high marks on the LGBT-Friendly Campus Climate Index and in The Advocate's College Guide. In 2013 Case Western Reserve was ranked by the Huffington Post as one of the top 25 LGBT friendly colleges in the country.
Work it Out! is a relaxed, professional forum for students interested in learning more about what it means to be an LGBT person or ally in the workplace. It will also be an excellent opportunity to network - bring your resume!
The evening begins with hors d'oeuvres, followed by a brief presentation given by the CWRU Career Center. It will focus on networking skills and resources available to the LGBT community, both on and off campus, to aid in the job search.
Next, our professional guests will be stationed at different tables. Students will be arranged into groups and will rotate through each station for the rest of the time. This will be the majority of the program, and will provide students with an excellent opportunity to voice their questions and concerns about being true to themselves in life after CWRU.
This also allows employers the chance to indicate if they would like to recieve a student's resume for follow-up discussion about employment opportunities. We will be using a "speed dating" type number system to match compatible employers and students.
Registration for the event is mandatory.
The LGBT Center has begun compiling a list of single stall, private restrooms. For more information, please refer to our bathroom inventory page. If you know of any restrooms that aren't yet included, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it to the list.
"We value the contributions of every student, staff and faculty member, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, political persuasion, sexual orientation or gender identity."
