Hire Hopkins | June 2023

A Message From Our Director

Dear reader, 

It’s June which means the official start of summer, or summer solstice, is right around the corner on June 21st. It also means we’re recognizing Pride Month – which is a month dedicated to uplifting LGBTQ+ voices and supporting LGBTQ+ rights. 

Below, our student writer Vibha shares clear ways companies can advocate for all humans in their workplace, including those employees who are LGBTQ+. Unfortunately, this year has been marked by record numbers of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation introduced in state legislatures. I know our fellow LGBTQ+ colleagues, families and friends – humans who are doing their best to live in a world that is more hostile – could use the support that Vibha described. Additionally this is a good read if you’re not sure why your company should acknowledge pride month or how you can go about it.

We’re also thrilled to share that our dates for our biggest career fair, Future Fest, are now public and you can sign up for an early-bird discount below.
