Who is Out & Equal?

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.

We partner with Fortune 1000 companies, government agencies, and organizations across industries and diverse missions to provide LGBTQ executive leadership development, comprehensive D&I training and consultation, and professional networking opportunities that build inclusive and welcoming work environments.

Where will the Workplace Summit be held this year?

To help keep everyone safe during the evolving global health pandemic – and to support companies in including more LGBTQ employees during tough economic times – Out & Equal will convene the 2020 Summit virtually instead of in Las Vegas as originally planned.

Although we will miss the in-person connection, we are excited to propel forward the learning, the inspiration, the connection, and the community that makes Summit so unique and so transformative. And we know that cutting-edge technology and creative engagement will enable us to do some new and amazing things together.
