Community Resources

Creating professional pathways for the LGBTQIA+ community

While Arizona State University  has many resources for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual students, faculty, staff and their allies, there are many other organizations, resources and services that are available to you as part of the larger LGBTQIA+ community.

These lists may be helpful for individuals within the LGBTQIA+ community to find additional support, identify job or internship opportunities and other social services. Although these lists are updated frequently, they are not meant to be exhaustive. Please be aware, ASU does not endorse any organization or resource on these lists, regardless of their proximity to campus.

In addition to ASU’s Career and Professional Development Services, many local and national LGBTQIA+ groups offer advice on inclusive employers, coming out at work and the job search.
