The University of Louisville’s Career Development Center has been awarded Out for Work’s highest honor, a Gold status rating for the 2016-2017 academic year! Out for Work is a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to evaluating career centers’ programming and resources for LGBTQ students.
In November 2016, the Career Development Center was proud to partner with the LGBT Center on a career trek to Brown Forman as part of the regional conference, Come Together Kentucky. Candace Lamb, Assistant Director in the Career Development Center and Jess Shelton, Graduate Assistant for the LGBT Center, worked to plan and promote this opportunity for Come Together Kentucky participants. These students, representing universities from across the state, met with Brown Forman’s LGBT group to learn about their experiences working for the renowned company and were excited to learn about mentoring and internship opportunities.
Since receiving the “Bronze” level recognition in 2014, the Career Development Center has used Out for Work’s assessment to increase its services for UofL’s LGBT students and provide resources for the unique needs of this population. In 2015, this collaboration was recognized with Out for Work’s Silver certification after partnering with the LGBT Center to provide employer panels, vendor fairs, and specialized presentations for students.
