BGLTQ+

Students who identify as bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, and/or questioning (BGLTQ) deserve a supportive environment both in college and as they transition into the workforce. However, the inclusion of BGLTQ employees may vary by industry and geographic location. As a BGLTQ student you may encounter unique career planning challenges related to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. When preparing for entry into the workforce, we recommend that BGLTQ students meet with representatives from the Office of BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard College and career advisers at the Office of Career Services.

Regardless of how you identify, we are here to meet you where you are and to help you determine what is right for you as you plan and prepare for your next step.
