LGBTQ Speakers

Just 20 states in the US provide protections for LGBTQIA+ employees. Diversity and inclusion efforts need to recognize and value the lived experiences of those in the LGBTQIA+ community, and that starts with hearing their stories. WSB connects event planners with LGBTQIA+ speakers, including sports icons, CEOs, and more. Available for in-person or virtual events and meetings.
