admin kxtqqr , , , , , , ,

first_imgAccording to Out and Equal, one in four LGBTQ employees has experienced some form of discrimination on the job. In fact, 89% of Americans believe it is illegal under federal law to be fired because you are LGBTQ. Not true. Still, no federal protection law exists within the U.S. for LGBT employees.In honor of LGBT Pride Month, Glassdoor, the leading social jobs and career community, dug into company reviews shared by employees to find out some of the employer programs and workplace attributes that benefit the LGBTQ community.15 Companies That Offer Transgender-Inclusive Health Care CoverageCheck out the highlights below:Employee Commentary on LGBTQ-Friendly Companies:“Microsoft is a great company for the following reasons: Encouraging diversity (employee action committees for everything from gay & lesbian group to discussion groups for homeowners).” – Microsoft Employee (location n/a)“Ceramatec is very pro LGBT. They really go out of their way to discourage any type of discrimination against the LGBT community. The people are very good to work with and they treat everyone with absolute respect.” – Ceramatec Technician (Salt Lake City, UT)“Very accepting of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees and sponsors annual workshops relating to issues that affect this community.” – McGraw-Hill Education Employee (New York, NY)“Diverse workplace, LGBT friendly, open culture, smart coworkers.” – Google Recruiter (Mountain View, CA)“Being LGBT, it was great to be a part of a company that had so much respect for the LGBT community.” – Abercrombie & Fitch Employee (Honolulu, HI)3 Steps to Transitioning Careers as an LGBTQ Professional“LGBT are welcome and that says a lot.” – MetLife Employee (New York, NY)“They also have partner benefits (as in LGBT partner/spouse [which is amazing as it’s one of the only companies that openly embraces its LGBT community.])” – Starbucks Shift Manager (New York, NY)“The company also recently added a committee to specifically address the concerns of the “Lesbian – Gay – Bisexual – Transgendered – Allies” communities and extended health benefits to domestic partners. As a whole, I would have to say the company does take these issues, as well as other minority/discriminatory issues quite seriously.” – TD Bank Customer Service Representative (Philadelphia, PA)“The company itself champions diversity. As a transgender person, it’s phenomenal to have supposed protection as an employee.” – HCSC Employee (location n/a)“They claim to embrace diversity and not tolerate discrimination of any kind, and in the heavy truck industry, offered domestic partner benefits while risking their reputation.” – Cummins Applications Engineer (Columbus, IN)__________________So what should LGBT job seekers keep in mind when on the hunt for a new job or company?

Halloween — it’s a scream!

first_imgSitting around the glow of a fake fire in a darkened room at the Harvard Allston Education Portal’s “Treat and Greet,” Harvard undergraduate Ed Portal mentors told a rapt audience of diminutive witches, ghouls, and hippies a story about a Nebraskan goblin that had trouble falling asleep.The Friday event was the second installment of Harvard’s “Treat and Greet” at 175 North Harvard St. The community get-together offered a fun, festive occasion for Allston neighbors to mingle, meet Harvard students and staff, and learn more about the Harvard departments, programs, and organizations in Barry’s Corner.The scary storytelling station in the Ed Portal was one of the series of activities undergraduate mentors hosted for their young visitors that evening. Just outside, Ed Portal mentors helped witches and “Star Wars” characters decorate pingpong “eyeballs” to place in spoons, which the youngsters then carried while racing, trying not to drop them. A short walk across the parking lot, the Harvard Ceramics Studio Haunted House delighted visitors.Mentor Nick Perkons helped princesses and superheros mummify each other with maximum toilet paper coverage. “You might want to keep your hands to the sides. It will be easier,” he advised.Inside, a 4-year-old princess kitty was busy at work at the dry ice station. “I’m watching an experiment and it’s going to EXPLODE!” she said excitedly as a bowl of colored soapy water transformed into a rapidly bubbling cauldron with the addition of dry ice.Nearby, in a small conference room used for one-on-one science, math, and writing sessions, Harvard Achievement Support Initiative (HASI) staff showed two mothers with young children how molding sand can help children of all ages learn.Raquel Almeida, mother of Beatriz, 3, and Luana, 1, brought her daughters to this year’s “Treat and Greet” event after enjoying it last year. “It’s nice for us to see what’s happening in the Ed Portal and the initiative Harvard takes in the community,” said Almeida.Almeida, who lives in Brighton, said she loved having more things to do within walking or biking distance and is anxiously awaiting the opening of Stone Hearth Pizza and Maki Maki, the new sushi restaurant, which will be in Brighton Mills Shopping Center. She also got a sneak peek of the Ed Portal annex that will offer additional community programming space focused on arts and leisure activities for all ages. The annex is scheduled to open later this winter. “I’m excited about the whole thing,” she said. “It’s really nice to see more things happening in the neighborhood.”Allston residents Jennifer and Mario Alvarez and their 9-year-old son, Sebastian, and 1-year-old daughter, Mia, walked to the party from their house two blocks away. Sebastian, who goes to the Gardner Pilot Academy, was dressed as a the character from “Scream.” He has been coming to the Allston Education Portal since he was 5 years old, originally to learn science, but now he works on his writing with a tutor. “He is a good student, but has many ideas and wants guidance on how to organize them,” said his mother. “We love the academic enrichment Sebastian gets from the Ed Portal.”The lights of Stone Hearth twinkled across the street as workers made a final push to ready the restaurant for opening this week. Despite not being officially open, Stone Hearth still provided pizza for the occasion, which partygoers enjoyed while listening to the Boston Minstrels, who performed such classics as “Monster Mash.”Tim McHale, Allston resident and founder and director of the Boston Minstrels, thought this year’s “Treat and Greet” was a real success. Harvard’s community events provide “great opportunities for families and children to come together,” he said. “Allston and Harvard have been growing together for the last eight years.” Experimentations Tiana Guillermo, 7, experiments with dry ice and soap with classmates from the Gardner Pilot Academy in the Harvard Allston Education Portal. Magic sounds Crowds gather to listen to the Boston Minstrel Company. Little hero Superhero Ian Ellis, 5, dances to the musical stylings of the Boston Minstrel Company.

Nassim Soleimanpour’s show is playing Monday nights at off-Broadway’s Westside Theatre; Cumming will perform on April 25.No rehearsal. No director. No set. No spoilers. A different performer each night is handed the script for the first time as they step onto the stage.

Other stars with dates set in the calendar include: Patrick Wilson on March 21, Brian Dennehy on March 28, Wayne Brady on April 4, Cynthia Nixon on April 18, Mike Birbiglia on April 11 and Martin Short on May 2.Forbidden to leave his country, young Iranian playwright Soleimanpour found a way for his voice to get out when he physically could not—distilling the experience of his isolation in a non-traditional new play.
