The Global Hub

The Out & Equal Global Hub is a unique portal for partners, bringing together real-time problem solving, best practice sharing, global ERG mapping and more. By connecting change agents working inside their companies and organizations for LGBTQ equality, The Global Hub serves as a revolutionary resource helping companies learn from each other and more efficiently achieve effective D&I ROI. 

With over 800 users from 200+ companies, the Global Hub has rapidly grown since its launch in 2020. Since then, we have been constantly thinking about ways to improve the user and administrative experience for our partners. Over the past year, we have been working to create a sustainable, expandable, maintainable solution that can serve Out & Equal for many years to come, while offering virtually unlimited options for enhancement, integration, improvement, and refinement.
