For the third consecutive year, the Susan B. Anthony Institute has been awarded the LGBT Giving Circle Grant! The mission of the LGBT Giving Circle at the Community Foundation is to unite donors to support organizations that serve, are inclusive of, or are allied with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community to enhance and strengthen the Rochester area.
The Institute received this support for the “Out At Work” project, which was developed by the SBAI and a representative from the Gay Straight Alliance at the Simon Business School. “Out at Work” will be a great opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students, staff and faculty at the University that will include panel discussions, workshops, a keynote lecture, and a networking breakfast. The events will be aimed at addressing a variety of issues that LGBTQI individuals encounter in applying to and working in professional jobs, as well as in choosing, applying to and attending graduate school.
Thank you to Nora Rubel, Angela Clark-Taylor, and Jane Bryant for all of the hard work you put into creating a safe and inclusive space for LGBTQI students at the University of Rochester!
Stay tuned as we release information about the panels, workshops, speakers for the “Out at Work” event which we plan to hold in the late spring of 2015.
