The LGBTQ Community's First Open Source Series Conferences, Workshops and Seminars!

LGBTQ Week® is an "open source" mosaic of events and activities, produced and hosted by various LGBTQ-dedicated organizations. Focusing on two weeks in New York City during World Pride facilitates a synergy among the events and organizers that isn't otherwise available. In year's past, we've worked with the NGLCC to produce a 1/2-day workshop regarding certification and business tools for success, as well as a joint networking reception. We've also worked with the IGLTA to produce a 1/2-day LGBT Travel Symposium, oSTEM and Credit Suisse to produce an evening panel on Talent in Modern FinTech, StartOut and their LGBT Women's Business Event, and Out Professionals with their LGBT Tech mixer event. These events are cross-promoted to all the other LGBTQ Week events, expanding awareness and participation. We're happy to consider all content contributors!
