Join us October 21st in NYC, as Jennifer Brown moderates a panel featuring New York Life, Moody’s Corporation, GMHC and Executive Director of The Center. As part of our ongoing diversity education effort, Jennifer will talk to women in both corporate and non-profit leadership positions about getting women out to participate in diversity initiatives.  We would love to have a diverse audience that includes not only women or LGBT diversity leaders, but other ERG leaders as well.  This issue is one that affects employee resource networks, no matter the affinity.  With generational LGBT issues and bullying consistently in the news, we are sure to touch on some important points.  All are welcome to join us!

Here is a direct link to the event at The Center.

We hope to see you there.

  • What kind of support and activity are we losing out on if women don’t participate?
  • The corporate world: how is the LGBT ERG (employee resource group) reaching out to women to get them involved and how can they be successful at doing so?
  • Do women participate in some of the other ERGS (e.g. Latino, Asian, African American) and what can the LGBT ERG learn from them?
