Diversity Recruiting Practices for LGBTQ+ Employees


With global LGBT buying power estimated at $3.7 trillion according to LGBT Capital, it’s no wonder companies are seeking out opportunities to market to and support the LGBTQ+ community. One major way companies can demonstrate support for the LGBTQ+ community is through their recruiting, hiring and training practices to promote a diverse workforce. This session will provide attendees with information based on a survey regarding companies’ recruiting practices for diverse populations, particularly LGBTQ+ employees. Attend this session from the Texas Tech University Career Center to gain insight into employers’ diversity hiring and training practices.
