Event: Pride, no Prejudice – Bringing your Authentic Self to Recruitment, brought to you by the Boston Consulting Group

UC Careers are pleased to share information about this upcoming event on 15 October at 5:00 pm.

At BCG, we celebrate the diversity of our teams and recognise the importance of building an inclusive culture. Pride@BCG strives to make BCG the most fulfilling firm for LGBTQIA community members to work for, and actively recruits top talent and supports LGBTQIA individuals throughout their careers.

Our Pride@BCG team are opening their (virtual) doors to the student community to bring you a seminar on being your authentic self throughout any recruitment process. This is your opportunity to get to know our LGBTQIA employees and hear their stories as they have an open discussion and share their experiences on bringing diversity to the interview table. Spaces are limited and by invitation only.

UC Student Blogger | UC Rainbow Community – Finding Your Place

At UC every student should feel happy, welcome, and confident to be themselves. Diversity is an important part of campus life and our differences should be embraced. That’s why UC aims to provide an amazing variety of services to meet the needs of each and every student. 

That’s why we have our very own Rainbow Coordinator, Ari Nicholson, to support students.

Ari plays an important role on campus advocating for the University’s LGBTQIA+ community, with the goal of increasing knowledge and visibility for the 15% of UC students who identify as being members of rainbow communities. 

Ari provides students with advice, and can help you meet new friends by connecting you with other Rainbow students on campus. If there is any part of your UC experience you would like help with, or just for a chat, pop in and see Ari.

Ari’s office is located on Level 1 of the Forestry building (Room 118) and you can visit between 9 am and 5 pm Monday, and 9am to 2.30 pm Tuesday and Wednesday.

More information about Ari can be found here

Aside from a dedicated Rainbow Coordinator, UC offers other great resources for the Rainbow Community as it aspires to provide equitable study opportunities. 

Students can meet to discuss any concerns with UC Diversity Champions and the UC Health Centre can provide counselling services. More information on Student Care can be found here. The UCSA Advocacy and Welfare team is also always there to help you.
