Did you know that transgender job seekers face a high unemployment rate due to discrimination? Where I work, at the San Francisco LGBT Community Center, we believe that employment is a basic right for everyone, including trans and LGBQ-identified individuals.

 In this workshop, you will learn to use goals, budgets and technology to gain more control over spending habits, discover specific ways to save and utilize tools to help you manage your money.

Get a Good Loan. Build Credit. Create Community.

It is often easy to think of ourselves as unworthy of mentoring or leadership positions when so many of our accomplished leaders are already active within their communities. Despite flaws and imperfections you may think prevent you from being a leader or mentor, it is these very same flaws that make your activism enduring.

Get an edge in your job search by attending the SF LGBT Center’s Employer Panel of Hiring Experts.

Learn tips, tactics, tools and techniques from leading Bay Area employers committed to diversity recruitment. Employers will answer your questions and discuss career opportunities, effective job searching techniques, and tips on how to expand your professional network.
