PFLAG National and the Straight for Equality team are hitting the road to represent PFLAG National’s incredible work at the 2016 Out & Equal Workplace Summit!

For the ninth consecutive year, we’ll be presenting at the Summit – along with some of our National Sponsors – on the progress that can be made in all sectors of work and our lives when allies and the LGBTQ community come together to move equality forward.

Jean-Marie Navetta and Jamie Henkel of the Learning & Inclusion team will be joined at the summit by PFLAG National’s other presenters, including Deputy Executive Director Elizabeth Kohm, and Director of Advocacy, Policy, and Partnerships, Diego Sanchez, and other staff members as they spend the week learning more about workplace diversity issues, meeting with corporate partners, and sharing information about Straight for Equality and PFLAG National projects.  

Staff will have the opportunity to attend the conference, present workshops and participate in panel discussions with corporate partners like Alcoa, Dow, Johnson & Johnson, Wells Fargo, and Whirlpool on topics that range from creating successful corporate and nonprofit partnerships, making the case for LGBTQ inclusion in manufacturing facilities, and more.

If you have the opportunity to attend Out & Equal this year please check out at least one of our workshops! You’ll love our interactive sessions and walk away with Straight for Equality and PFLAG National materials to support the work that you’re doing in your own community.  

And, if you have any questions please contact Jamie Henkel at [email protected] or (202) 657-6998. She’s happy to help.

Keep watching the Straight for Equality Facebook feed for updates on our progress, photos, and (possibly) some mouse ears and wizard wands!
