2009 Out & Equal Workplace Summit

2009 Workplace Summit photos, survey, videos and resources now available online


We have combed through thousands of photos, hours of videos and speeches in our effort to continue providing you with useful tools and resources to help you further lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workplace equality.

Please feel free to review our photos, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's congratulatory speech to the Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies, winners of an Outie Award, the text of Deloitte Chairman Sharon L. Allen's speech, the 2009 Out & Equal Workplace Summit wrap-up video, workshop presentations, and more.
In addition to the photos and videos, we have compiled a 2009 Workplace Summit trip report as both a Power Point and PDF - complete with data and metrics - for you to share your experiences with your colleagues, as well as your executive team.

We will continue to add more photos, speeches and videos, including videos from our plenary speakers as well as the featured panels, making them available to you through our website as well as the Summit Facebook fan page.

We also encourage you to take our Summit survey to tell us what you thought about your experiences at the four-day event.
