The Business of Belonging

Out & Equal is the premier organization working exclusively on LGBTQ workplace equality. Through our worldwide programs, Fortune 500 partnerships and our annual Workplace Summit conference, we help LGBTQ people thrive and support organizations creating a culture of belonging for all.



More than 5,000 executives, Employee Resource Group (ERG) leaders and members, HR, Diversity & Inclusion professionals, experts, and community leaders attended the Out & Equal Workplace Summit October 6-8, 2021. Even as we wrestled with the myriad impacts of the pandemic, our community still showed up to Summit to get inspired, to connect, to learn, and to shape the Future of Work! 




This Transgender Awareness Week, the team at Out & Equal has curated a list of our best resources and stories to support greater visibility and awareness of the transgender and nonbinary community. Our message to the trans and nonbinary community is clear: You belong here.



Your Story. Your Truth. Your Power

It’s time to revisit and revise the old narrative of “coming out of the closet.” It’s not just one act or a moment in time. Out & Equal has created this guide as a tool for LGBTQ people and allies looking to strengthen their understanding of how to share their stories in the workplace and land in a place of empowerment and growth as individuals and within the organization.
