OVERVIEW

#OutLeadershipMemberSpotlight
Bloomberg Member Spotlight: Racism within the LGBTQ+ Community
June 29, 2020 | 11 am EDT

Join us for a Proudly Resilient event

While the LGBTQ+ movement looks forward to a world without homophobia and transphobia, it too often fails to look inside itself at the racial biases that people of color face in the cis-straight world. Racism is rampant in the LGBTQ community and when we fail to address and confront that racism, we fail the most vulnerable among us. This conversation will explore the intersection of race and the queer identity; confront the racism in the LGBTQ+ community; and encourage us to identify the roles we all play to support LGBTQ+ inclusion.

Hosted by:

Jim Ellis, Assistant Managing Editor for BusinessWeek.
