- Remember, it is illegal for an interviewer to ask about your sexual orientationn or gender identity. The focus of interviews should be around your ability to perform the essential functions of the job rather than your sexual orientation or gender identity expression. It is your choice to disclose your sexual orientation or gender identity. This can happen during the interview, when the job is offered, in the workplace, or not at all.
- Ask questions such as “Can you tell me more about diversity in your organization and the initiatives that are already in place?” Their answer may provide you with the information you need to determine if the organization is LGBTQ+ friendly. Wear professional attire in accordance with your gender expression.
- Not sure if a company is LGBTQ+ friendly? Consider
utilizing LinkedIn to find alumni at the organization and set
up an informational interview. Ask about the culture,
especially around diversity.
