As part of Out & Equal’s multi-part global initiative to spread out our events across the entire year with each quarter focused on a new theme, the Q2 Southern States Forum will bring together hundreds of LGBTQ+ and ally professionals to share Southern perspectives on what it means for individuals and companies to be resilient this Pride season. We will hear inspirational stories from leaders in the South, discuss best practices in harnessing the power of our own narratives, and engage in peer-to-peer learning opportunities during interactive breakout sessions.
