How can we create an environment where everyone feels like they belong and are valued for their true selves? It begins by celebrating differences, sharing experiences and having the courage to lead.

Join us as we explore the journeys of prominent leaders on their paths of LGBT+ advocacy and allyship. Hear how they successfully embrace authenticity and, in doing so, build stronger teams, change perspectives and break barriers.

Who should attend: Leaders interested in tapping into the impact that allyship and belonging bring to an organization. We welcome and encourage allies of all backgrounds and identities.
