Selisse Berry on LGBT Workplace Equality in Mexico 
Selisse Berry and Ruben Sandoval
 
Out & Equal Founding Executive Director Selisse Berry presented a keynote address last week during the the Second International Expo & Business LGBT event in Cancun, Mexico.

Selisse discussed the importance of reaching out globally to bring changes to the workplace. Out Now's Global LGBT 2020 Study for Mexico was released at the conference and revealed that 56 %  of LGBT people surveyed in Mexico believe that being out of the closet could keep them from advancing in their careers. "No one should ever have to choose between a career they love and living their lives with authenticity and integrity," Selisse said.

Hear Selisse speak at the 2012 Out & Equal Workplace Summit on Wednesday, October 31st!
