Are there any career development related opportunities specifically for LGBT students?
AuthentiCity is an event, supported by Stonewall, created exclusively for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* (LGBT) undergraduates looking to explore career opportunities in the City. You’ll get to speak to representatives from six worldwide firms, who’ll be providing a valuable insight into their work and sharing their experiences of being LGBT in the workplace. Get involved and we could show you just how much you can accomplish while still remaining true to who you are.
Who should attend?
If you have career aspirations in Legal, Investment Banking, Professional Services, Fund Management, Insurance or Real Estate – or you simply wish to explore what these industries have to offer – then this event is for you.
Many people believe their gender or sexuality can put them at a disadvantage when looking for jobs. Our aim, above all, is to help put your mind at rest, open your eyes to the wide range of options available, and encourage you to show the world what you’re really capable of.
