WorkPride Opening Welcome and Our First Panel of the Day: How to Secure a Graduate Level-Job in an Inclusive Organization

Finding a job can be a scary time for any recent graduate. Deciding what you want to do and what sort of organization fits your values and interests can sometimes be a challenging process. All of this might even become more complicated during a pandemic, where the political and economic conditions of the market are everchanging. 

11:00 - 11:05am: Welcome from myGwork
11:05 - 11:15am: Keynote from Executive Vice President of State Street, Cuan Coulter

11:15 - 12:45pm: Opening Panel

For the LGBTQ+ community, another layer is added with the need of finding a place where they can bring out the best version of themselves. This panel aims to showcase, on the one hand, what organizations are doing worldwide to promote an environment of diversity and inclusivity, and on the other, what skills and strategies graduates can rely on to find the perfect match in their job-hunting journey.

    I am originally from Belgium however see myself more as a person from the world. I have been living abroad for over 8 years and that has helped me become who I am. A proud gay man who does not hide it, come up for his community and tries to be an example for others. I believe inclusivity on the work floor is a very important factor these days. I have experience within hospitality, events, travel and the IT industry within several markets.
