Participants are invited to experience panels, workshops, networking opportunities & meet employers that value LGBT diversity in the workplace. Glennda Testone The Center Executive Director stated, “The Center helps real people with real issues every day & employability of the LGBT community is one that must be addressed in a serious, meaningful manner.
