The Intersection of LGBTQ+ Equality and Racial Justice

Equality and Racial Justice Panel – Part 1
June 30, 2020

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. During this event, our panelists and moderator provided 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.

The first installment of our 2020: The Year of LGBTQ+ Inclusive Leadership Series was a panel titled Advancing Inclusive Workplaces.
