Changing the Landscape for LGBTQ Rights

October 29th at 11am Pacific/ 2pm Eastern

Changing the Landscape for LGBTQ Rights

Significant progress has been achieved in the last two decades in the advancement of workplace equality for LGBTQ employees, including the standardization of same-sex partner benefits and trans-inclusive non-discrimination policies. Many private and non-profit employers have taken a public stance in creating inclusive workplace policies and marriage equality, with engaged shareholders making contributions in this advancement. However, across the globe and in dozen of states people can still be legally denied a job, or fired, simply because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

During this webinar, participants will learn about specific investment and policy tools that have been used to move society closer to a full measure of equality for LGBTQ people.
