As we step into an era more progressive with inclusive initiatives it has become increasingly important for both companies to be conscious of these efforts and employees looking to work for these companies. Top inclusive employers have made expansive efforts to better themselves by creating a fair and welcoming environment to all in the workspace. 

Properly expressing your identity in the workplace, and knowing your rights, is critical to professional success. As you begin or continue your professional journey, you may be wondering the following: 

  • What rights do I have to protect my identity? 
  • Have I ensured the companies I’m talking with are accepting of my identity and values? 
  • How can I best inform myself about diversity in the workplace? 

The resources below are meant to further educate, assist, and provide a sense of visibility related to diverse backgrounds.
