A conversation LGBTQ+ students and their views on the importance of joining an inclusive employer

Research shows that over 60% of LGBTQ+ graduates go back into the closet when they enter the job market... this interactive panel is designed to hear directly from students, and what they expect from inclusive employers including what organizations can do to help them bring their whole selves to work. We have selected students from across the world to give a voice to the future generation of LGBTQ+ professionals. 


In partnership with:

    Clifford Chance
    LLB Finalist at the School of Oriental and African Studies. As a queer Muslim woman, it is my prerogative to create safe spaces for those in the LGBTQIA+ community and advocate for the rights of those intersections of society that are vulnerable, as I have also faced the struggles many young people who identify with these communities have faced. I believe in the important of visibility and equal opportunities in the development of any professional career field. As a future trainee solicitor at Clifford Chance, I hope I can become a role model for other queer professional Muslim women like myself. To truly thrive as a person in all avenues in life, I strongly believe that being able to be your true authentic self lies in enabling and inclusive environments which not only give a sense of belonging but aid you in flourishing as an individual. Now that I have a voice, I want to use it for those who do not or are just beginning to use theirs.
