One of our primary goals is giving students connections to workplaces where they’d feel safe and empowered in coming out at their job, where they can show up as their “authentic self”. For this purpose, in order to present and recruit from us, we require all industry partners and companies to have scored the highest possible score of 100.0% on the latest annual Human Right Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. (Not sure what that means? Check out our FAQ.)
Our List of Industry Partners:

We are always looking for exciting opportunities for companies with proven pro-LGBTQ records (a 100.0% HRC CEI score required) and LGTBQ ERGs to present to oSTEM @ TAMU. We offer both specific and general benefits to presenters and recruiters who can share their information to oSTEM members.
When you agree to present to oSTEM at TAMU, you’ll receive our folder of top-notch resumes from a diverse group of STEM students ready to fill your organization’s needs and roles. If you specify what majors you’re looking for and the roles you need filled, we’ll find and contact the relevant members to prepare specific & knowledgable questions about the roles in question before the meeting.
