LGBTQ Workplace Advocates (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, February 01, 2021

This week I talked to Erin Uritus, CEO of Out & Equal Workplace Advocates the world’s premier nonprofit organization dedicated to achieving LGBTQ workplace equality. Celebrating 25 years Out & Equal partners with Fortune 500 companies & government agencies to provide executive leadership development, comprehensive training, consulting & professional networking opportunities that build inclusive & welcoming work environments. They work with executives, human resources professionals, employee resource groups & individuals to provide leadership & professional development, education & research to create workplaces free of discrimination. Out & Equal also hosts annual events & programs where employees & experts can share strategies & best practices to create workplace equality inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities & expressions. Due to COVID-19 these events are being held virtually including their 2021 Executive Forum that will convene online April 13th to 15th for three days of interactive virtual learning & networking. This 3-day program features daily plenaries & networking opportunities. Attendees will have access to 9 sessions across three tracks: LGBTQ Leadership, DEI Best Practices & Intersectional Allyship. Their annual Workplace Summit, Brazil Forum, Southern States Forum, India Forum & China Forum will also be held virtually in 2021 with dates to be announced. Every year Out & Equal also presents their Outie Awards recognizing individuals & organizations who are leaders in advancing equality for LGBTQ people in workplaces globally. Winners are announced during their Workplace Summit in October. I talked to Erin about what she hopes to accomplish at Out & Equal during the pro-equality Biden Harris Administration & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN:
