The Office of Career Services (OCS) believes that the diversity of the Harvard community strengthens and enriches our campus. OCS is committed to serving students of all backgrounds, identities, and experiences (including and not limited to gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, nationality, socioeconomic status, and disability). As diverse professionals, students may face specific challenges navigating career opportunities and the workplace environment.
To that end, OCS encourages students to look through their Resources for Diverse Populations* to learn more about programs and support available for specific populations, and to stop by drop-ins for a one-on-one session with a member of their diverse team of advisers. The BGLTQ-specific resources can be found below, and additional resources can be found at the OCS website.
*Please note that this list is meant to serve as a starting point, and as such is not exhaustive.
