Why Attend

Graduate employers across a wide range of career sectors are focusing on making sure LGBTQ+ employees feel confident to be their authentic selves in the workplace: not just accepting people’s differences but celebrating them.

Not only will this mindset benefit you as you apply for and begin your first graduate job, but organisations are increasingly recognising the value of a diverse and well-supported workforce. When employees are comfortable with who they are, they’re happier and more enthusiastic about their work – meaning they’ll do their job to the best of their ability.

Attending Empower will give you the chance to meet representatives from some of these employers for yourself and find out what they can offer you. They’ll explain why equality and inclusivity matter to them and give you some top-notch application and interview advice to help you get your ideal graduate job.
