Join Out & Equal on December 7th for an evening of fun and networking! The goal of our Pre-Forum Networking Happy Hour is to have a good time, build new connections, and be ready to bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the Out & Equal LGBTQ China Forum the following day.
On December 8th, we will host the 3rd annual 2020 LGBTQ China Forum, which brings together hundreds of company leaders for a half-day of an enlightening plenary discussion focused on LGBTQ inclusion journeys throughout the region. Following the panel will be the opportunity to join breakout groups to discuss key points, ask questions, and engage in peer-to-peer learning and networking.
