The 1st Out and Equal Workplace Summit was held in Atlanta 11 years ago. It is time to bring it home. This summit will bring millions of dollars to our community and city. The Out & Equal Workplace Summit provides attendees with all the information and resources they need to become an out and equal workplace. At the Summit, individuals, human resources professionals, diversity managers, employee resource group (ERG) leaders, and allies have the perfect platform from which to make powerful connections, share best practices, and formulate a strategy that allows for a powerful demonstration of their commitment to equality in the workplace. The Summit boasts more than 2,300 attendees who participate in over 125 workshops and caucuses all designed to create an inclusive workplace. The abundance of activities and nationally celebrated keynote speakers result in an experience that has been described as an enlightening watershed of information. The Summit justly deserves its international reputation as the premier conference on LGBT issues in the workplace.
