The last two years have seen unprecedented progress in social awareness and employment opportunities for all people. As a staffing partner to a variety of industries, Goodwin Recruiting has been able to work side by side with our clients as they have made strides to celebrate diversity and provide inclusion. At Goodwin, our Diversity & Inclusion council focuses on being positive change agents internally as well as externally with both clients and candidates. With this in mind, we want to recognize today and take a moment to remember those who have lost their lives due to their gender identity.
On this day, we honor those who were victims of the struggle for equality. We remember those who are no longer with us that trail blazed and paved the way for so many in the LGBTQIA+ community today. We also want to recognize transgender people who have made an impact and helped create the world we live in today. So many key figures are in leading roles in education, government, entertainment, and all facets of our lives. Here is a shortlist of outstanding individuals.
Goodwin Recruiting is an ally to all candidates seeking employment and wants to celebrate employers who recognize qualifications have nothing to do with one’s gender identity. If we can be of service, please reach out to us. For anyone who is transgender and in need of support outside of their job search, The Trevor Project is an available online support group.
As we enter the holiday season and break bread together with family and friends, let’s remember those who have gone before and work together to create a safer world for everyone.
