To accelerate LGBTQ+ talent, we invite senior executives and emerging leaders to engage in leadership programs and curated events around the world. OutNEXT, OutWOMEN and Quorum are the only talent accelerators of their kind, elevating LGBT+ executives through our best-in-class network.
OutNEXT is the only global talent development program for emerging LGBTQ+ executives. Participation is complimentary for Out Leadership member companies, who are invited to select high-performing, high-potential, openly LGBTQ+ employees to participate in events throughout the year.
OutNEXT is the first and only global leadership development program for emerging LGBTQ+ talent. Since 2014, OutNEXT has engaged 3,500+ Emerging LGBTQ+ Leaders from 300+ Organizations on 5 Continents. Our proprietary curriculum has been developed using learnings and insights gleaned from 10 Global OutNEXT Summits and 20 regional OutNEXT Salons. The OutNEXT Summit curriculum provides learning modules, breakout sessions, networking, a social impact challenge, world-class guest speakers, and peer mentoring opportunities - all designed to help emerging LGBTQ+ leaders turbocharger their personal and professional development and empower the next generation of LGBTQ+ leaders. The OutNEXT Global Summit is open to emerging LGBTQ+ leaders, 5-8 years into their careers who are employed by one of Out Leadership's 85 member firms. Each year our member firms nominate 3-5 emerging LGBTQ+ leaders to participate in OutNEXT.
OutWOMEN is the first global network of LGBTQ+ women executives. Its mission: to connect out women in business to one another, call attention to their accomplishments, and leverage their strength to speed progress for all women in the workplace.
OutWOMEN engages with hundreds of LGBTQ+ women annually through open-to-all breakfast and lunch panels in New York, London, Hong Kong and Sydney as well as curated invite-only salon dinners for senior-level women.
Quorum is the only movement to increase LGBTQ+ representation at the corporate board level by creating the largest network of board-ready LGBTQ+ executives, facilitating leadership development opportunities for future and current directors, and working with policymakers and companies to expand the board definition of diversity to include LGBTQ+ representation.
Quorum has built a network of over 1,000 LGBTQ+ leaders interested in board leadership, created the first-ever white paper to encourage companies to amend their governance guidelines to include LGBTQ+ diversity, and engaged with policy leaders across the country to help foster change.
