    Event Description:
    Are you interested in joining the majority of businesses that know that hiring lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) employees and opening their doors to LGBT clients/customers is not only the right thing to do, but also makes good business sense?

    Equality Virginia, HRBOR (Hampton Roads Business OutReach), and RBA (Richmond Business Alliance) announce the inaugural EMB (Equality Means Business) Symposium to be held on Thursday, September 7, 2017, at the Crowne Plaza Hampton-Marina in Hampton, VA beginning at 2:30 PM. Increasingly, companies know that hiring lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) employees and opening their doors to LGBT clients and customers is not only the right thing to do, but also makes good business sense. The 2017 EMB Symposium will offer important, valuable, and up-to-date information to business owners and human resources professionals on ways to create more LGBT-inclusive working environments.

    Experts on diversity and inclusion will speak on a variety of topics including Policy Language & LGBTQ Cultural Competency, Overcoming Bias, Making Your Workplace Reflect Your Values, Economic Advantage of LGBTQ Inclusion & Visibility, and Being Trans-Affirming. The growing list of speakers will be announced at a later date.

    The Symposium is open to businesses of any size. Business owners and HR professionals from every industry will be able to gain important and valuable information from this conference. Any organization, whether just getting started or those with inclusive policies in place are encouraged to attend to learn more about opening their doors to gay and transgender clients and employees.

    Become a sponsor of the 2017 Equality Means Business Symposium and showcase your company to other business owners and Human Resources (HR) professionals seeking to create more inclusive working environments and who also want to grow their business. The EMB Symposium is open to all industries of any size looking to gain meaningful and valuable information.
