LOS ANGELES -- The City of West Hollywood will sponsor the LA Gay & Lesbian Center’s Transgender Economic Empowerment Job & Resource Fair from 10 am to 3 pm on Thursday, Nov. 7 at the National Council for Jewish Women in Los Angeles. The fair will include an employer brunch and training on Gender and Sexual Diversity in the Work Place.
The Transgender Economic Empowerment Project of the LA Gay & Lesbian Center assists transgender people who are struggling to find work by providing job skills and job opportunities as well as by providing trainings for employers.
“Our goal is to make sure that employers find qualified applicants,” said Drian Juarez, Manager, Transgender Economic Empowerment Project. “The transgender community is an untapped pool of talent, with candidates who have college degrees experiencing unemployment rates at twice the national average. It’s time for this to change. This job and resource fair is a step in the right direction!”

The National Council for Jewish Women is located at 543 N. Fairfax Ave. in LA.
