The 2013 Out & Equal Workplace Summit, October 28-31, is coming: leadership institutes on Monday followed by three-days of 120 cutting-edge workshops, unparalleled networking opportunities, and inspiring speakers. Onsite, visit us at the Out & Equal Engagement Center in the Exhibit Hall to test drive our new Learning Management System. 

Can't make it to the Workplace Summit? Take a look at the workshops here, and send me the 2 workshops you would most like to see if you were at Summit. The highest-rated and most requested workshops will be featured in the Virtual Summit Series, kicking off in January, 2014.

I hope to see you in Minneapolis, and online for the Virtual Summit!

Founded in 1996 by Chief Executive Officer, Selisse Berry, Out & Equal Workplace Advocates (commonly known as "Out & Equal") is the world's leading organization dedicated to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workplace equality and inclusion. Out & Equal believes that people should be judged by the work they do, not by their sexual orientation or gender identity.


Out & Equal mobilizes tens of thousands of employees, managers and executives via a network of regional affiliates and the world's largest Employee Resource Group Registry. Through LGBTCareerLink, an online job search and career development service, Out & Equal serves diversity-friendly employers and LGBT job seekers. Through trainings and webinars, Out & Equal educates diversity friendly employers on both the basics and best practices in the field. Out & Equal is best known for the hallmark annual Out & Equal Workplace Summit that convenes over 3,000 LGBT, HR and diversity professionals to advance this movement. The 15th anniversary Workplace Summit will be held in Minneapolis, MN from October 28-31, 2013. More information is available online at
