JANUARY, 2012
Business of Change at the Creating Change Conference

January 28 – Baltimore
Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, in collaboration with the Gill Foundation, launched the Business of Change website in September 2011– LGBTBusinessOfChange.org. This digital platform offers practical and actionable recommendations for nonprofits and corporations, citing concrete examples of successful partnerships—large and small.  Originally published as a printed guide, the website, and associated social media sites, take Business of Change to the next level, where the dialogue about collaboration and partnership can continue.

Business of Change is happy to be included at the Creating Change Conference, an exciting gathering that features 250 workshops and caucus sessions, four keynote plenary sessions, worshipful gatherings, film screenings, meetings, receptions, and social events. The conference is expecting between 2000 and 3000 attendees, which is primarily comprised of activists and organizers working to “build our movement’s political power from the ground up to secure our overarching goal of full equality, social justice and dignity for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the United States.

We will be presenting the following workshop: Engaging Corporations for Local Support
This workshop will consider a number of case studies—all real world partnerships with LGBT organizations and corporations—to show ways that working together can succeed in supporting our causes. Attendees will learn about internal structures of decision-making, how to research a corporation’s interests and funding priorities, and how to successfully form a pitch for potential funding by corporations to support the work of your organization. You’ll leave the workshop with new ideas to support your work! Click here for more information about Creating Change.
