#HireTrans is launching this week to push for more opportunities for transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) individuals, who face high obstacles for consistent employment and advancement opportunities on the job.
And plan to attend the WERQ! LGBTQ Job Fair this Friday at the Center on Halsted. More than 75 major corporations, small businesses, government agencies, schools and nonprofits will participate.
The #HireTrans campaign is created by Windy City Times. Equality Illinois is proud to be a sponsor, along with Chicago House and Social Service Agency, Center on Halsted, Howard Brown Health, Heartland Alliance, Association of Latinos/as Motivating in Action (ALMA Chicago), and Pride Action Tank.
