Out & Equal is a workplace advocacy group that works with businesses to ensure that they are creating accepting and inclusive workplaces for their LGBTQ+ employees. My organization, the Greater Seattle Business Association, partners with Out & Equal because we share similar values including the belief that equality is good business.
Every year, Out & Equal hosts a workplace summit which includes 3 days of educational opportunities including over 90 workshops, featured panels, community advisory roundtables, special networking mixers, receptions and events, and inspirational plenaries featuring prominent LGBTQ and ally leaders and amazing performances. The Summit will also include an LGBTQ Career Fair on October 4th from 11am to 2pm at the Washington State Convention Center.
Many of Out & Equal’s corporate and government partners are eager to recruit LGBTQ talent. The Career Fair is free and a great way to connect LGBTQ students, graduates, and job seekers to companies with inclusive and welcoming workplaces.
