Our occasional LGBT work life educational series, in which topical experts from the DU and larger community share their knowledge and experiences. These events provide useful information on issues where our identities impact everyday experiences, and how to navigate those uniquely LGBTIQ intersections. Unless publicized otherwise, these events are free and open to the public.
