Why Does Partnership Matter?

Partnering with Out & Equal provides your company and Employee Resource Group with three key benefits:

Visibility: Visible corporate support and participation reinforces company brand and reputation as an employer of choice for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender ad 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: Out & Equal offers education and thought leadership which are essential for Employee Resource Groups, talent/HR and 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.

Partnership offers:

Employee engagement: Partnerships with Out & Equal are an effective forum for organizations to ensure that they stay on the leading edge of best practices around this aspect of talent management. We provide organizations with the opportunity to contribute to the dialogue for emerging issues and best practices affecting LGBT employees.

HR/Diversity and Inclusion professional development: Out & Equal highlights aspects of LGBT workplace equality to the talent management community, from general education to policy development to changes in the legal framework affecting the LGBT employee community.

Executive networking: We provide a unique opportunity for senior executives — those from the LGBT community and allies with positions in senior organizational leadership — to be visibly supportive of LGBT workplace equality.

Out & Equal works at all levels within companies: Employee Resource Groups, HR teams, executives and allies. We take the view that supportive, collaborative, professional partnerships lead to workplaces that are free from discrimination allowing all people to thrive. Our personal relationships—and the trust we’ve built—are the reasons we have been so successful.
