This was an Out & Equal Virtual Summit held on March 19, 2013. Information on viewing the archived version is contained in this blog. During the 2012 annual Out & Equal Workplace Summit, we experienced Hurricane Sandy and although over 1400 were able to attend; our featured panel and workshop sessions were disrupted. Many presenters couldn’t get to the Summit and many who wanted to attend were not able to get to Baltimore and missed the workshops that were held. We also know that during the Summit, there are many choices and some of the sessions, attendees just couldn’t make it to all the sessions they wanted. Through the Virtual Summit Series, we’re hoping to provide you with another chance to join our workplace equality discussion. Lend your voice to the conversation with the comment box below.
Helping ERGs Embrace the B and T
Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Does your Employee Resource Groups (ERG) alphabet begin with G and end with L? While your ERG may have the best intentions, it could be accidentally excluding others. Even the best ERG can become more inclusive. This workshop – facilitated by Amy Clements, Deloitte Consulting LLP; Brielle Darynn, Deloitte Consulting LLP; Heidi Bruns Green, Chair of Out & Equal’s Bi Advisory Council and Consultant; and Jamison Green, Jamison Green & Associates – will include a forum to share ways to make your ERG more inclusive of sexual and gender diversity while helping to build equality. Greater ERG diversity can help your company attract and retain top talent.
