Case studies of LGBTQ+ recruitment events panel

For many businesses running recruitment events is a successful way in not only giving an insight into your company culture but for many candidates is an opportunity to hear first hand from your employees on their experiences,  at a time when (in the short term) we can no longer host physical events and may be moving to transition pre-planned events to a virtual space, hear from LGBTQ+ recruitment event organisers on what made their past events so successful and how they hope to replicate this in a new digital capacity.

  • Tyler Brklacich
    Tyler Brklacich
    IE University
    I have spent nearly 7 years working in and out of the non-profit world. It has been my love and passion to try and leave the world a little better than I found it yesterday. Even after all these years, I am still excited as I was the very first day of my first job with an NGO. I have been able to focus on issues including anti-human trafficking, global poverty, autism, elementary and higher education, and international development -- but there is so much more to do. Issues such as gender development, racial injustices, low-income communities, LGBT equality, education, and promoting sustainable development both domestically and internationally. I want to continue the work I have been so lucky to be apart of and use the worldly experience that I have gained both in the United States, traveling abroad, or living in West Africa for two years. It is my goal to be apart of something bigger than myself and contribute to the good in the world.

    National Student Pride / Architecture LGBT+
    In 2005 I founded National Student Pride whilst at Oxford Brookes University in response to a homophobic talk on campus on Homosexuality and the Bible. We are now the Pride of conversation, tackling different and topical issues each year such as Intersectionality and Mental Health as well as hosting the UK's biggest Diversity Careers Fair. In 2016 I founded Architecture LGBT+ providing a safe, inclusive & prejudice free environment for LGBT+ Architects and those working and studying within the profession through networking events, learning, mentoring and role models. I am Director at Guy Piper Architects, we do a range of residential and commercial projects in London, Oxford and Brighton.
