The Baltimore Convention Center will be the venue for the annual Out & Equal Workplace Advocates Summit that will take place Oct. 29-Nov. 1. Out & Equal is committed to creating safe and equitable workplace environments for LGBT employees.
At the summit, individuals, human resources professionals, diversity managers, employee resource group leaders and allies will have a platform from which to make connections, share best practices and formulate a strategy that allows for a demonstration of their commitment to equality in the workplace.
The summit usually attracts 2,500 attendees who participate in more than 140 workshops and caucuses designed to create an inclusive workplace. Judy Shepard, mother of murdered gay student Matthew Shepard, is scheduled to speak.
