Out & Equal workshop: Frenemies: Leveraging friendly competition to drive workplace equality across firms

OPEN Finance has been a driving force in advancing LGBT equality and inclusion in the workplaces of almost 45 financial services companies by harnessing the competitive nature of our members. During this interactive session, the leaders of the organization will discuss how an Employee Resource Group made up of ERGs has created a volunteer run, grass roots operation to continue to make financial services and all employers more inclusive for LGBT and all employees. This workshop will take the format of a short presentation with video followed by a panel discussion of ERG leaders from various member firms as well as community partners.

Speakers: Jon Tilli (Deutsche Bank), Juan Davalos (BNY Mellon), Elise Colomer-Cheadle (SAGE), and other representatives
