Out LeadershipOut Leadership

Out Leadership grew out of two industry-specific business initiatives — Out on the Street® and Out in Law — and three cross-industry talent accelerators for LGBT+ leaders: OutNEXT, OutWOMEN, and Quorum. We began in 2011 with 6 founding firms and now count more than 70 of the world’s leading companies across 13 industries as members. In every global business sector, Out Leadership has been instrumental in making LGBT+ equality a priority in global C-Suites. Through executive events, talent initiatives and periodic communications, we lead the conversations that inspire Out Leaders and multinational companies to grow business through inclusion.

Workplace PrideWorkplace Pride

Workplace Pride is a not for profit foundation dedicated to improving the lives of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders and Intersex (LGBTI) people in workplaces all over the world. We strive for a world of inclusive workplaces where LGBTI people can truly be themselves, are valued and, through their contribution, help to lead the way for others.

For more than 10 years, Workplace Pride has been working to highlight the positive and constructive side of LGBTI inclusion in the workplace. We do this together with the Foundation's members which include both private and public sector organizations, multinationals and smaller national organizations as well as academia. Our members represent a wide variety of sectors, countries and business models, but they all share the desire to proactively create workplaces where LGBTI people can be themselves.
