The conversation about LGBT inclusion as a business driver is a global one, and we are the first truly global LGBT business organization. We’ve held Out Leadership Summits and seminars on four continents thus far, and are deeply engaged with member organizations throughout Europe, Asia and North America.
Engagement with Out Leadership clearly signals a firm’s commitment to LGBT equality on a global basis. We operate two industry-specific business initiatives and two broad-based talent initiatives, all of which engage with LGBT and Ally business leaders worldwide.
