The Intersection of LGBTQ+ Equality and Racial Justice

As we commend the recent Supreme Court decision to protect the equal rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people, we recognize that we must keep focused to address racial injustice for black, indigenous, and people of color within our community, nation and world. Please join us on Tuesday, June 30th from 11:45am to 1:00pm Eastern Time for a panel discussion on racial justice.  Our panelists and moderator will provide insight, support and guidance for LGBTQ+ leaders, allies, employee resource groups, HR professionals and business leaders who seek to create a more inclusive workplace for all LGBTQ+ employees.

PIOW achieves its mission through a variety of activities and initiatives focused on promoting a more LGBTQ-inclusive workplace, including educational, community-building and networking events, knowledge sharing, professional development, and providing expert resources for Human Resources (HR) groups, Employee Resource Groups (ERG) and executive management.
