The Business Case for Marriage Equality
Join Out & Equal's "Summit within a Summit" on Marriage Equality

This year, the final day of Summit will encompass a “Summit within a Summit” – focused on why marriage equality IS a business issue! Although marriage equality is regularly debated in the media, the corporate voice is largely silent. Friday’s Marriage Equality Summit within a Summit will emphasize the Business Case for Marriage Equality– outlining and illustrating why marriage equality is not simply a social issue but, rather, a business issue worthy of attention. The Marriage Equality Summit in a Summit promises to be an enlightening day of exciting speakers, panelists, and workshops – outlining, amongst other aspects, the importance of marriage equality from a business angle and perspective.

The day will consist of a Feature Breakfast with program that will include recognized speakers and leaders in the arena of marriage equality, followed by two Feature Panels and issue-specific workshops. Guests who choose to purchase a ticket for Friday’s events only will also gain entrance to the Closing lunch plenary.

Breakfast is included in the price of the $50 ticket when purchased with the summit, and $200 when purchased without full summit (Friday only).
