Welcome to Warwick Professional LGBTUA+ and Allies Network!
We are proud to be the University of Warwick’s first ever careers society dedicated to uplifting LGBTUA+ students from all backgrounds to ensure that no one is ever limited in their professional aspirations due to their sexuality or gender identity. Truly feeling valued in the workplace and achieving your full capabilities requires not just feeling accepted but that you truly belong, and by working with companies and organisations over a diverse range of sectors we want to ensure that this is something LGBTUA+ people experience from their first day at work to their last. We have dedicated exec members for STEM, Public Sector, Finance, Consulting and Law who have spent the last summer building an incredible selection of sponsors and partners to provide high quality events for you across the next academic year.
We have a range of events lined up for terms 1 & 2 to help you get the best head start you can in your chosen career path. From CV and Cover Letter workshops, interview prep sessions, networking with individuals from industry leading companies and talks from LGBTUA+ individuals from a diverse range of career paths.
Especially after two years of constrained opportunities to socialise we want PLAN to be not just a careers society but a community where our members can have fun! That’s why we have a selection of drinking and non-drinking socials planned including circling sessions in the Copper Rooms!
PLAN’s 2022 Summit
In the second half of term 2 we will be hosting our first ever PLAN Summit event packed with exciting workshops and talks for everyone to enjoy and benefit from!
Our mentoring scheme can provide you with hands on assistance as you navigate a complex and often confusing network of application cycles for Spring Weeks, Summer Internships and beyond.
PLANORAMA is our monthly magazine packed with high quality creative articles written by our members on a range of topics affecting the LGBTUA+ community. Anyone can write for PLANORAMA, just contact our wonderful Editor in Chiefs with an article pitch and you might make it into the next edition!
And much, much more!
