Featured Sessions
The Post-DOMA Era: The Great News for Companies and Employees!
Moderator: Elizabeth Birch, Elizabeth Birch Company
Panelists: Kirsten E MacPherson, Boeing; Jeffrey Gorczynski, Citi; Steve Wasik, Aon Hewitt.
Since 1996, progressive companies have tried to mitigate the impact of
Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in search of benefits equality for LGBT
families. The Supreme Court took the first steps to end DOMA but new
challenges now face LGBT employees and companies. Our panel looked at
the impact DOMA has had, what companies have been doing, what changes
are on the horizon and what the next steps are.
Featured Sessions
LGBT Equality Intersects with Corporate Public Policy Aims:
When Interests Converge
Moderator: Bob Witeck, Witeck Communications
Panelists: Diego Sanchez, PFLAG; Michael Wascom, American Airlines; TJ Maloney, Marriott.
A decade ago, corporations remained mostly silent on LGBT public policy.
Community leaders and LGBT policy experts brought litigation and legislation
on issues in the economic sphere, the marketplace and the workplace. Today,
business executives and lobbyists recognize their interests match or parallel
those of LGBT advocates on key issues. This timely discussion shared the
views, experience, best practices and pitfalls/challenges of public affairs
experts.
Featured Sessions

Moderator: Robyn Ochs Panelists: Heidi Bruins Green, Ellyn Ruthstrom,
Denise Penn, Faith Cheltenham, Lauren B Beach.
This workshop showcased luminaries of the bisexual community. Facilitated
by Robyn Ochs, editor of Getting Bi and acclaimed international expert on bi
topics, this was a conversation about the state of the bisexual movement and
the influences on it from the workplace and popular culture.
Featured Sessions
Coming Out in Prime Time: Seeing Through the Transgender Lens
Panelists: Zoey Tur, Jamison Green
For many, the personal journey of identifying as transgender is series of
"coming out" moments. It starts with yourself, then your families/friends and
finally, on the job. Zoey Tur shared her story, as she revealed in June 2013
her decision to live openly as a transgender female with gender identity
disorder (GID). Formerly Bob Tur, one of LA's most famous helicopter
reporters, Zoey talked about her journey and decision to share her life in the
public eye.
Featured Sessions
The Importance of Allies to LGBT Inclusive Workplaces –
Sponsored by HP
Moderator: Joanne Sprague, Friend Factor, Re-Founder and CEO
Panelists: Amy Hanneman, HP; Tammy Mangum, Bank of America; Mike
Fanning, MassMutual.
The progress on LGBT-inclusive policies and practices in the workplace over
the past decade has been remarkable. The successes that we have seen
have only been possible thanks to the support of allies to the lesbian, gay,
bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. This panel - of allies and
LGBT leaders - explored how enlisting the support of allies remains a vital
strategy to LGBT workplace equality.
Featured Sessions
Uncovering Talent
Moderator: Christie Smith, Managing Director for the Deloitte University
Leadership Center for Inclusion.
Many decades after the formal inclusion of women and minorities in the
workplace, second-generation barriers to full inclusion endure. NYU School of
Law Professor, Kenji Yoshino, and Deloitte University Leadership Center for
Inclusion Managing Principal, Christie Smith, Deloitte LLP, have co-authored
a white paper, "Uncovering Talent," that offers a new approach to achieving
inclusion. The authors focused on the issue of "covering" - the process
through which individuals downplay their differences, often at great cost to
their sense of self, to be included the workplace.
Featured Sessions
Discovering Strength in our Diversity:
Voices of Latino/Latina/Hispanic LGBT/Allies
Moderator: Ana Duarte McCarthy, Citi.
Panelists: Michael Lopez, Alcoa.
Diversity initiatives have provided the space for employees and
Employee/Business Resource Groups to come together and develop
innovation and creativity for the workplace. Our panel talked about the
experience of Latino/a and Hispanic employees who identify as LGBT or
allies and the other issues, concerns, cultural barriers and strengths that
these employees bring to the workplace.
Featured Sessions
Paving the Intersection of LGBT and Disability Issues
Moderators: Jennifer Brown, Jennifer Brown Consulting; Tari Hartman Squire,
EINSOF Communications.
Panelists: Deb Dagit, Geri Jewell, Kathy Martinez, Betsy Dixon.
Deb Dagit opened the session framing the issues around disability in the
workplace. Our panel of experts created more than a strategy for D&I. They
explored differences such as there being less traction in
establishing/engaging disability ERGs compared to LGBT ERGs. They
explored common issues as “ambassadors” of corporate, public and
entertainment sectors who self-identify as both LGBT and persons with
disabilities. Issues include self-disclosure; passing; power & pride; naming,
framing /claiming differences; bringing your whole self to work; leveraging
privilege; hierarchy of identification and marginalization, creating distance
between groups for the sake of social change, self and collective identity.
Featured Sessions
Breaking Ground: LGBT Religiosity and Bias in the Workplace
Moderator: Mark Fowler, Tanenbaum Center for Inter-religious
Understanding.
Panelists: Deborah Dagit, Deb Dagit Diversity; Karyn Likerman, Citi; Melvin
Rosado, Merck & Co.
Workplaces around the globe are familiar with the conflicts that typically arise
between religious and LGBT identities in the workplace. The assumption is
that the religious employee and the LGBT employees are inherently different,
and that conflict is inevitable. This panel of experts unpacked this
assumption, and presented findings from two separate ground-breaking
studies to illustrate that issues of religion, sexual orientation, gender identity
and experiences of religious bias and conflict in the workplace are far more
nuanced.
Featured Sessions
Deciphering the Rules for Taxation of Benefits for Same-Sex
Spouses/Partners
Moderator: Brian Silva, Marriage Equality USA. Panelists: Todd Soloman,
Brian Tiemann (McDermott Will & Emery).
LGBT individuals on average pay over $1,000 in annual federal income taxes
on benefits for same-sex spouses/partners - taxes that same-sex spouses in
certain states and unmarried same-sex partners may continue to pay even
after the Supreme Court's ruling on DOMA. This workshop provided a
practical overview of complex federal/state tax laws that require this unequal
treatment to illustrate how the taxable amount of benefit coverage is
calculated and whether benefits are taxable in the state where you
live/work.
Featured Sessions
A Dream Not Yet Realized: ENDA Passage
Moderator: Mara Keisling (NCTE)
Panelists: Deena Fidas (HRC) Patsy Doerr (Thomson Reuters) Ian
Thompson(ACLU) and Pat Baillie (Out & Equal)
There are still no federal protections for LGBT employees. The panel
highlighted what you can do to move LGBT workplace equality from a dream
to a reality.
Featured Sessions
It Starts at the Top: Successful Executive Sponsors
Moderator: Kevin Jones
Panelists: Howard Ungerleider, Executive Vice President – Advanced
Materials, The Dow Chemical Company; Jim Wilkinson, Executive Vice
President – Communications PepsiCo; Matt O’Grady, Executive Vice
President – Local Media, Nielsen.
The role of an Executive Sponsor is critical to the success of an
Employee/Business Resource Group. As Sponsor, they can leverage their
personal brand, relationships, and resources to enhance the visibility and
credibility of the ERG/BRG. They act as a business mentor and champion
that translates into both the opportunity – and the responsibility – to learn,
support, and make a true difference. In their role, they encourage people to
focus on how to engage others and improve communication, enhance the
members’ leadership qualities and develop partnerships while helping to
overcome barriers. This panel included the perspective of executive and HR
sponsors for corporate LGBT ERG/BRGs, and shared their experiences as to
what makes the role of executive sponsor successful and rewarding.
Global Series
Sponsored by IBM
Power of LGBT in the Growth Markets
Panelists: Silvy Vluggen and Tony Tenicela (IBM).
Implementing culturally sensitive LGBT programs in the world's fastest growing
economies can be challenging for multinational corporations. In many growth markets,
barriers, such as a penal code criminalizing gay relationships and non-supportive
legislation, are unfortunately still a reality today. Long recognized as the global leader
for implementing LGBT programs and policies, IBM is committed to providing a safe,
open and inclusive working environment for its over 440,000 employees worldwide.
This workshop presented best practices and lessons learned on how IBM has
addressed the LGBT community from a workplace and marketplace perspective in key

companies that hire LGBT community members, were discussed. The evolution of
policies that impact the LGBT community, and hiring practices of large organizations
were also discussed. This interactive presentation, which included audience

Exploring LGBT Opportunities in India
Panelists: Amanda Yik, Senior Programme Manager, Community Business; Tony
Tenicela, IBM.
Despite growing awareness in India of the link between diversity and enhanced
business performance, sexual orientation and gender identity has largely been
overlooked. Considered a subject not appropriate in the workplace and shrouded in
taboo/stigma, companies - local and international, have steered away from including
LGBT on their corporate diversity agenda. Change is happening (with legislation and a
more visible LGBT community) - all across Asia, Leading companies are part of
achieving greater acceptance, equality and creating a safe/open environment for their
LGBT employees. Based on research and partnerships, Community Business shared
key LGBT issues in India. On this panel were corporate representatives from pioneers
in India's LGBT inclusion.

Starting Over: A World View as a Refugee
Panelists: Neil Grungras, Tiela Chalmers (Both Organization for Refuge, Asylum &
Migration).
Imagine living in a country where by law, you could be killed or sent to jail just for being
LGBT. How would you be able to find and keep a job and take care of your family? For
many, they leave their homes and start over. NGO's such as the Organization Refugee
Asylum and Migration (ORAM) work within this paradox of persecution-where secrecy
is crucial for safety, but protection requires revealing identity. ORAM influences
institutional changes that help create a more responsive climate and humane policies
for refugees on their complex path to safety. The panel discussed the global issues for
LGBT and discussed how corporately and individually we can work for change.
Global Series

From Russia, With or Without Love
Moderator: Sean Livingston, Vice-President, Client Advisor JP Morgan Chase.
Panelists: Michael Guest, Senior Advisor, Council for Global Equality | Former US
Ambassador to Romania; Innokenty Grekov, Program Associate, Human Rights First;
Mary Garrity, Director - Technology Alliances, IBM.
Russia’s new law, which bans the promotion of any “nontraditional” sexual activity, has
caused a global discussion on sexual orientation and gender identity. The 2014 Sochi
Winter Olympics in a few months warns LGBT athletes, coaches and spectators that
they will not be welcome if they are “out” at the Olympics. Russia reports that they
don’t ban homosexuality and the law would not apply to visitors but it is unclear how
the law will be applied. What is the situation in Russia and what should we know?
What has been the response in the media to the new law and businesses around the
issues and the Olympics? What should sponsors consider? Our panel looked at the
options and issues and shared their insights.
Special Session
An evening with Robbie Kaplan
We held a special session in which LGBT
pioneer and attorney Roberta “Robbie”
Kaplan shared her insights on the DOMA
ruling by the United States Supreme Court

Windsor in this landmark case, also
addressed questions from the audience.
