Selisse Berry Joins Equality Florida

By Charlotte Robinson, October 05, 2019
Selisse Berry the founder & architect of the nation’s largest LGBTQ business organization Out & Equal has joined the Board of Directors for Equality Florida. Berry has worked for decades to engage global business leaders on issues of LGBTQ workplace nondiscrimination & now brings that authority to the fight for full equality in the State of Florida. Berry stated, “When we launched Out & Equal, few Fortune 500 companies had protections for their LGBTQ employees. Now, those protections are nearly universal. I’m excited to join Equality Florida in the work to secure full equality for the LGBTQ community & help state leaders realize what the business community has come to know: that embracing inclusion is key to creating healthy institutions.” Stratton Pollitzer, Equality Florida Deputy Director concluded, “The State of Florida will set the tone for equality across the country. Selisse knows better than anyone that treating LGBTQ people with dignity & respect is good for business & the right thing to do. If Florida wants to compete for talent & stake its claim as an economy that is equal & open to all – the time for comprehensive LGBTQ protections is now.” Equality Florida is the largest civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s LGBTQ community. Through education, grassroots organizing, coalition building & lobbying they are changing Florida so that no one suffers harassment or discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity. A few years ago I talked to Selisse in this exclusive audio interview on OUTTAKE VOICES.
