At Out & Equal, we know that the telling of one’s personal story is one of the most powerful ways we can communicate, make personal connections, and create change. And, we know that coming out, and being out, as LGBT in the workplace can be daunting, and that everyone has a different experience.
We invite you to submit a video to the Get Your Story Out project—and just by doing so, you will be entered to win registration for one for the 2012 Out & Equal Workplace Summit (This year’s Workplace Summit takes place in Baltimore, Oct 29-Nov 1). All video submissions will be entered into a pool, and a winner will be chosen randomly.
