We just had a huge win at the Supreme Court. It is now illegal for employers to discriminate against LGBTQ employees in the United States. This is a monumental victory in the fight for full civil rights!

But the fight for equality at work is not over.

You already know that the most meaningful change is culture change. And that won’t be achieved through legal rulings alone. 

  • We need workplaces where LGBTQ people are valued for showing up as our full authentic selves!
  • We need workplaces that are looking to help us thrive!
  • We need this to happen not just in the United States, but in all corners of the world!

This is what Out & Equal is all about. We help employers understand that building cultures of belonging is one of the most important things they can do for their employees and their success.  We bring together leaders from all industries – from all around the globe – and we together we help them learn how to build that culture.

Our impact is big.

We have worldwide programming. The best known is our annual Workplace Summit: With more than 5,000 people in attendance — including from more than 70% of Fortune 1,000 companies — Summit is the largest LGBTQ-focused conference it the world!

And what happens in these events is backed up through constant work with executives, HR and D&I professionals, and LGBTQ employee resource group leaders. We’ve built tools like the Global Hub to strengthen their role as agents of change.

The change we need takes all of this and more… It takes leadership from advocates like you.  Help make this change a reality. Donate today.
