12:50 p.m., April 22, 2013--The University of Delaware Career Services Center partnered with Haven, the LGBTQ student group, to organize an “Out at Work” panel for LGBTQ students and allies on April 17 at the Trabant University Center.

Panelists included Melvin Rosado, employee business resource group leader and senior compliance specialist at Merck; Dana Kern, quality assurance analyst at JPMorgan Chase; and Kathleen MacRae, executive director of the ACLU of Delaware. 

Campus Stories

Board of Trustees

A new strategic planning initiative, faculty achievements, diversity efforts and STAR Campus programs were among the topics discussed during the Board of Trustees' semiannual meeting.

Strategic planning

The strategic planning working group focusing on Models for the New American Research University has been receiving input across a broad range of topics.

Panel topics ranged from developing a resume that references clubs and organizations with ties to the LGBTQ community to gender transitioning in the workplace.

Panelists shared that employment discrimination based on sexual orientation is only outlawed in 21 states and the District of Columbia, but not throughout the U.S., which should be considered and has implications regarding location.

Students left with a breadth of valuable information including how to research LGBTQ friendly companies through the Corporate Equality Index.
