out-n-equal-nortwest-organization-diversity-event

Out & Equal Workplace Summits have inspired lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) employees and allies to make real change in their workplaces for more than a decade. From global to regional summits, dedicated people are literally making workplace equality a reality for millions of employees around the world. Workplace Summits bring these leaders together to celebrate our successes, share best practices, and plan next steps.

You are making a difference through your presence here at the Northwest Regional Summit in Seattle and, even more importantly, through what you do in your workplace. This regional summit would not be possible without many volunteers who readily share their expertise to make this experience so valuable.

Thank you to the Out & Equal affiliate in Seattle, whose dedication and enthusiasm has been phenomenal. They have worked tirelessly to ensure that the 2015 Northwest Regional Summit will be the best yet.
