Workplace Summit Sponsors

Partnering with Out & Equal at our events provides your company and Employee Resource Group with three key benefits: Visibility, Empowerment, and Education.

Visibility: Visible corporate support and participation reinforces company brand and reputation as an employer of choice for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Ally (LGBTA) community.

Empowerment: A rich series of workshops, roundtables, panels, plenaries, events and programming for companies and their employees reinforces organizational values and develops expertise and leadership skills in response to emerging LGBTA workplace issues.

Education: The Workplace Summit offers education and thought leadership which are essential for  Employee Resource Groups, talent/HR, Diversity & Inclusion professionals, and executives to stay on the leading edge of best practices in LGBTA talent management. While there are plenty of opportunities for networking, we also respect the collaboration that can come out of peer to peer learning.
