Location: MGM National Harbor | MD

The LGBTQ+ community and its allies face unparalleled challenges – from a lack of legal equality, to a dramatically shifting landscape on all things Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) and advocacy. Sustainable change requires more than case studies and best practices: it requires leaders to grow their own self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and communication skills.

The annual Out & Equal Executive Forum (ExFo) is a one-of-a-kind gathering, bringing together LGBTQ+ and ally senior executives, Next Gen leaders, and DEIB practitioners from major global businesses and federal agencies for an immersive experience in which participants gain a deep understanding of cutting-edge practices and knowledge to address the most pressing challenges and opportunities in LGBTQ+ workforce equity, inclusion, and belonging.

Past attendees have noted that ExFo is a transformative professional development experience that moves leaders beyond lectures and typical networking sessions to collaborate and problem solve together on developing the most influential and impactful efforts and initiatives designed to advance progress for LGBTQ+ communities in the workplace and beyond.
