As part of HRC’s Transgender Justice Initiative, the organization is hosting several more installations of “Who’s Hiring Web Series For Trans Job-seekers,” including one on Sept. 23. The conversations will be led by Beck Bailey, director of the Workplace Equality Program at HRC, and Drian Juarez, vice president of programs at Trans Can Work. They will highlight current employment opportunities across the job market and how to apply. They will also provide job preparation resources such as resume prep and building interviewing skills. This series, which began in May, is designed to help employ transgender people, who statistically face a higher rate of unemployment than anyone else is the LGBTQ community due to workplace discrimination.
