Queer At Work

Queer At Work supports the labour market integration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex refugees.

In counseling we take into account the experienced discrimination and individual strengths, wishes and needs and develop prospects for education and work.

In workshops we impart basic knowledge of the Austrian labour market and application procedures and prepare specific applications.

In order to ensure a lasting improvement of LGBTIQ refugee’s employment outlook, we are also building a network of LGBTIQ-friendly businesses who would like to cooperate.
