Welcome to The Worcester Young Professional Women's Group!
Young professionals often feel the need to drive to Boston in order to go to LGBTQ specific events just so that they can feel like they belong to a community. There is a community of people right here in Worcester that identify as lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, cisgender, queer, genderqueer or gender non-conforming. Whether you are single or part of a couple; out or not out; looking to make friends or hoping to connect and network with others with common interests this is the group for you!
We get together about weekly or bi-weekly with events varying from: dinners, billiards, concerts, plays, pottery painting, book club, trivia night, bowling, and even weekend trips.
We're looking to bring speakers in on various topics this year as well. If you are a member of the community and would like to speak to our group on a topic, feel free to contact us.
We've found an incredible group of people living in or around Worcester. Our group is made up of professionals and people in graduate school and/or PhD programs. We have IT technicians, teachers, doctors, social workers, higher education administrators, business owners, lawyers and several people working through school! If you feel this is the group for you, contact us! (What type of job you have is not as important as being able to conduct yourself appropriately in a professional group.)
Required to join:
1) You are a professional (or grad student)- Are you a teacher, business person or other professional? Are you in graduate school for something that you are passionate about? Then we are looking for you!
2) You are 25-35 years old- We support women of all ages; however this group was specifically created with the hope of creating a space for people that fall into this age range and getting them active within the community. We ask that you apply to be in the group, only if you fall within this age range. Thank you for understanding!
3) You identify as LGBT or Q! Don't be fooled by the group title "women", we are open to people that identify as, transgender, or queer as well. If you feel this group is a place you would fit, apply, we are very welcoming.
4) A Picture- For the security of our group members you must include a photo that shows your face. This is for the comfort of all of our current and future members. (If you are not out and this concerns you, please contact us, and we are happy to work with you, so that you don't have to post a picture, but without discussing this with us, we will not be able to accept you.)
