Out & Equal Workplace Advocates is inviting qualified applicants to take part in the 2010 Out & Equal Executive Forum’s class for emerging lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender business leaders.

Set for April 19-21 at the Le Parker Meridien in New York City, the Executive Forum will bring emerging executives together for a unique, two-day experience that is designed to enhance participants’ effectiveness as leaders in their workplaces.

Only a limited number of seats are available for this exciting, new opportunity being added to the Executive Forum, now in its third year and known as one of the premiere conferences tailored for senior LGBT executives.

"Over the years, we have created a program - a foundation - that gives LGBT business leaders from around the world the opportunity to learn best practices from one another and become role models and examples for millions of people on how to be successful while being true to oneself," said Out & Equal Founding Executive Director Selisse Berry.

At the Executive Forum, participants will:

  • Hear from experts on issues that intersect with participants' professional roles, their LGBT identities and their advocacy
  • Engage in dialogue with peers on the toughest issues related to the LGBT equality movement
  • Gain a greater understanding of their roles as leaders in their corporations and as leaders creating inclusive workplaces
  • Learn successful strategies and tactics for an executive to further an out and equal workplace
  • Receive encouragement and coaching from peers on how to be their most authentic and powerful self
  • Benefit from expert facilitation to help reflect on and process provocative questions that arise during the Executive Forum

Out & Equal is especially targeting leaders who identify from the transgender community, the bisexual community and the communities of color.

The 2010 Out & Equal Executive Forum will conclude with the Leadership Celebration on April 21 at the Le Parker Meridien. This incredible celebration - including an exclusive reception and a special dinner - will celebrate those making a difference in the movement for LGBT workplace equality.

The cost to participate in the Executive Forum’s Emerging Executive Class is $1,600, and includes both the Executive Forum and the Leadership Celebration. To apply or learn more about the Executive Forum, please visit our website at www.OutandEqual.org.
