Out & Equal CEO Search (AUDIO)

Selisse Berry Out & Equal Workplace Advocates Founder & CEO announced she will be stepping down as CEO & moving into an advisory role in August 2017. Thanks to Selisse’s vision, dedication & collaboration 92 percent of Fortune 500 companies welcome LGBT employees with inclusive policies. Selisse stated, “I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to create & lead this incredibly important organization. In partnership with hundreds of the world’s largest multi-national corporations we have achieved more for LGBT workplace equality than I ever dreamed possible 20 years ago.” Berry started out by having one-on-one conversations with business leaders, sparking the relationships and building the business & human case for welcoming LGBT people into the workplace. Donna Griffin, Board Co-Chair of Out & Equal added, “After her personal experience with workplace discrimination, Selisse Berry turned to action: launching one of the most successful campaigns for LGBT equality of the last 20 years. Over the course of two decades she built Out & Equal into the global, thriving, $8 million nonprofit organization that it is today. Her work is an inspiration & her legacy will continue in the work of Out & Equal." The organization has launched an executive search to ensure its ongoing success as it continues to build partnerships with business leaders in the U.S. and globally to ensure LGBT can thrive in their workplaces. We talked to Selisse in this exclusive audio byte last October about her inspiration for founding Out & Equal Workplace Advocates & her commitment to LGBT equality:
