This Camber Exchange will focus on the topic of "Becoming a Workplace Ally: LGBTQ Inclusion at the Office and Beyond." Our panel of thought and organizational leaders will walk us through their ideas on what LGBTQ allyship looks like, examples of success stories in supporting LGBTQ employees, and unique consideration employees and colleagues need to take into account as allies for LGBTQ co-workers.

Key Takeaways:
1. How LGBTQ allyship differs from allyship for other disinvested communities
2. Practical tactics to support LGBTQ employees
3. Further understanding the influence of intersectionality on an LGBTQ employee's experience
