Event Overview:

The annual Workplace Summit is where employees and experts from around the world gather to share strategies and best practices to create workplace equality, inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions.

It’s one thing for corporations to have a commitment to creating workplaces that are welcoming and supportive of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees. But it’s another thing to develop policies and programs that can lead to equitable work environments. That’s where Out & Equal comes in. We collaborative closely with executives, HR and employee groups at Fortune 1000 companies to ensure that everyone has the knowledge and tools they need to deliver on their commitment to workplace equality.
