The 3rd Annual LGBTQ+ Job Fair
According to the Center for American Progress, HALF of LGBTQ+ adults reported facing some kind of employment discrimination in 2022. Additionally, UCLA research indicates that pre-pandemic LGBT people living in South Carolina were over double as likely to be unemployed as their non-LGBT peers. Given these realities, the Upstate LGBT+ Chamber is excited to co-present with 864 Pride the third annual career fair for LGBTQ professionals and allies.
For LGBT+ professionals, this is a great way to meet potential employers and network with LGBT-affirming businesses and for Upstate area employers, this provides an opportunity to actively engage HR and recruiting teams in supporting the LGBT+ community in The Upstate. The connections made will support a more equitable South Carolina where everyone can thrive.
This is a combined event with 864 Pride and the Upstate LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce and we're expecting a significant number of job seekers throughout the day making this a great opportunity to recruit for job openings. This event is free for job seekers and no registration is required.
