Reigniting Allyship Through Unity, Equity, & Inclusion.

During this event, we will candidly discuss the benefits and challenges that accompany the effective inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender team members in the workplace and catering your LGBTQ+ customers and clients. Together with our speakers, we will explore the importance of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies both in the workforce and within the community.
