Southern States Strategy

Through the Southern States Strategy – launched in 2019 – Out & Equal builds upon regional momentum to support and advocate for the LGBTQ and ally community.  Our Southern States programming helps employers build cultures of belonging in this region, taking into account the broader cultural context of the South and the daily realities LGBTQ workers and their families face.

Out & Equal has transformed our annual Southern Strategy to include a two-part virtual Southern Forum series, exclusive community roundtables, and regionally-specific toolkits and guides. This allows for continued, sustained engagement throughout the year with our partners on the issues that matter, as well as provide more unique opportunities for collaboration.

For more information on how to partner with us in future engagements or join our exclusive community roundtables, reach out to partnerships@outandequal.org.
