Career Support for LGBTQ+ Professionals
Navigating the professional space and marketing yourself to employers can be challenging, especially if you feel like you may not be able to bring your full, authentic self to work. Indy Pride is partnering with Ice Miller LLP to support your career advancement through new professional headshots, interviewing tips, resume reviews, and advice on maintaining a professional reputation on your social media.
Successful LGBTQ+ professionals in Indianapolis will be on hand to share their personal insights about how they represent themselves in the professional world and how that has affected them over time. Hear from these professionals about their struggles and successes with being out and proud professionals!
