TransOhio and TransCleveland are proud to invite you to the first ever Northeast Ohio Transgender Job Fair.
Every day there are thousands of Transgender and gender non-conforming Ohioans who find themselves underemployed or unemployed due to a lack of employment protections and transgender bias.
Not only that, statistics from TransOhio’s Transgender Needs Assessment and the National Center for Transgender Equality’s Injustice at Every Turn both show that Transgender Ohioans face exceptionally high rates of unemployment and poverty, in addition to workplace harassment, homelessness and anti-transgender violence.
We aim to change that.
After several months of extensive planning, TransOhio and TransCleveland, along with several community partners have planned an event to help end employment discrimination.
Northeast Ohio Transgender Job Fair
Saturday, November 22 – Sunday, November 23
