Brooke Robinson '16 Shares Her Experience Working at Q+ at Queen's University
Brooke Robinson ‘16 is a recent Queen’s Commerce graduate. During her time in university, she was one of two marketing directors for Q+.
Q+ is an organization that was designed to allow the LGBTQ+ communities at the Smith School of Business to flourish by providing a safe and inclusive space, promoting internal and external networking, mentorship and development opportunities.
Brooke got involved in Q+ because she wanted to find a community at Queen’s where it felt like she could be herself and be surrounded by people who were queer. “This was my favourite role because I could discuss all things queer with my team and we had a mutual understanding you couldn’t necessarily get from others outside Q+,” said Brooke.
At Q+ Brooke spent most of her time creating social media campaigns, developing content for social media platforms and helping with the creative needs of the Q+ events. They hosted events such as their annual conference, which brought together LGBTQ students and inclusive employers. This was a space where students could find job opportunities and connect with other queer individuals.
“If you are queer/an ally and going into the Commerce program at Queen’s, I highly recommend getting involved with Q+,” said Brooke.
