The Queer Student Awards are a new annual celebration recognising talented LGBTQ+ students, and allies, who are proudly leading in their lives and the communities around them. The awards provide a space to show our commitment towards positively addressing the adversity that Queer youths experience every day, especially when it comes to navigating their career options and worrying about whether or not their sexuality will act as a barrier to their future success.
Judged by a panel of student recruitment industry experts, queer influencers and young people from schools, colleges and universities across the U.K. the awards are a great opportunity to showcase commitments to creating an inclusive workplace for young LGBTQ+ people and to celebrate the achievements of apprentices, graduates and allies supporting them in their transition into the workplace.
We are so excited to be shortlisted for not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 awards!

The winners of this year’s awards are announced LIVE in this virtual event hosted by Ben Pechey, with a keynote from Coleen Cocles and music from Tom Aspaul. You can book your FREE tickets here!
