University of Richmond’s Office of Alumni and Career Services receives “OUT for Work” ranking
Office of Alumni and Career Services receives second gold ranking from OUT for Work; university committed to programs for LGBTQ students The University of Richmond’s Office of Alumni and Career Services has received a Gold ranking from OUT for Work (OFW), an organization that works to complement the educational experience for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students. This is the second year in a row that Richmond has received a gold ranking in the organization’s Career Center Certification Program (CCCP). OFW bases its rankings on a comprehensive assessment of nearly 160 career resource centers and releases its findings in an annual report. “The report looks at the level of LGBTQ-specific resources that college career centers provide,” said Leslie Stevenson, director of career services at Richmond. “We are proud of receiving the gold certification once again, as the university and our office continue to be committed to diversity and inclusion.” This year, Richmond’s Career Services has focused on a partnership with Common Ground, the office that supports diversity priorities. The center also works closely with the alumni group, LGBTQ Spiders, and has launched a LinkedIn subgroup dedicated to LGBTQ networking.
