Out Leadership LLC
Out Leadership launched our first initiative, Out on the Street, in 2011, with 6 founding members. As of 2016, we now count over 70 member companies and operate 5 global initiatives focused on engaging and empowering Out Leaders around the world. We are deeply engaged with C-suite and other senior business executives who are committed to the business case for LGBT+ inclusion.
At Out Leadership, we know that LGBT+ inclusion positively impacts business results, and that including LGBT+ people at the most senior level of executive leadership is powerfully beneficial for business bottom lines.
We call this idea the Return on Equality™.
Companies that join Out Leadership are immediately connected to our global network of senior business leaders who work within top firms to create business opportunity, cultivate talent, and drive LGBT+ equality forward.
Engagement with Out Leadership clearly signals a company’s commitment to LGBT+ equality on a global basis. We operate two industry-specific business initiatives and two broad-based talent initiatives, all of which engage with LGBT+ and Ally business leaders worldwide.
Our model is partnership, not sponsorship, and we work closely with every member company to customize their engagement. Member companies have exclusive access to our industry-leading global Summits, as well as opportunities to present to them. They also have exclusive access to our proprietary insights and leadership curriculum, as well as our Initiatives: Out on the Street, Out in Law, OutNEXT, OutWOMEN, and Quorum.
