Who We Are

Out & Equal is the premier nonprofit organization working exclusively on LGBTQ+ workplace equity, inclusion, and belonging. Through our worldwide programs, Fortune 500 partnerships, and transformative convening events, such as our annual Workplace Summit, we help LGBTQ+ people thrive and support organizations creating a culture of belonging for all.

We partner with Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and organizations across industries and diverse missions to provide LGBTQ+ executive leadership development, comprehensive D&I training and consultation, and professional networking opportunities that build inclusive and welcoming work environments.

Out and Equal works with executives, HR and D&I professionals, and LGBTQ+ employee resource group leaders to strengthen their role as internal change agents, bolstering their effectiveness and helping them incorporate and advance best practices in Diversity & Inclusion work.

We believe equality is about more than checking off boxes. And we know inclusion requires more than a set of directions. It’s about creating spaces that celebrate and foster growth for every kind of employee, where leadership is made up of different people with diverse perspectives.

Our goal is to challenge organizations and transform workplaces. Together, we can develop an environment where everyone can thrive.

That’s the business of belonging.


Global workplaces where all people are equal, belong, and thrive.


Out & Equal is the global convener, thought leader and catalyst actively working to achieve workplaces of equality and belonging - supporting LGBTQ+ employees and leaders who thrive in their careers and lives and achieve greater impact on the world.
