OUT&Proud Research Panel

This is new research looking into the experiences of young LGBT+ people at university and work.  The study was commissioned by Clifford Chance, Deutsche Bank and the University of York, supported by National Student Pride.

  •    An exceptional panel was brought together to reflect on the findings:
  •    Tailored careers advice needed
  •    Support for being out and staying out
  •    Benefits to employers beyond diversity: grit & resilience
  •    Juggling multiple identities: exploring intersectionality a diverse set of backgrounds, related to this challenge, highlighting that many LGBT+ inclusion events tend to focus on white gay men. How can a black LGBT+ woman relate? The experience of being LGBT+ will be different for everyone and we need to be mindful of this when building our environments

    Future Trainee Solicitor
    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.
