LGBTQ+ Entrepreneurs Meet Up

LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs are at a distinct disadvantage in growing their businesses. In addition, the majority of states in the US do not hold protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We're at the critical moment in human history to eradicate this senseless bias.
In a casual meet up format, LGBTQ+ people and allies are invited to come together to network, share stories, and learn how we can empower the wider queer community. We will promote discussion about the current state of LGBTQ+ people in the startup world, and what we can do to as leaders to bolster workplace inclusiveness in the future. We'll also brainstorm what can be done at a higher level as entrepreneurs to advocate for change at the state and national level.
