WHO WE ARE.
WHO WE WANT TO BE.
OPEN started in 2006 as a grassroots effort by Madison-area LGBT leaders. Originally named Out Professional Executive Network, the group has repositioned itself to Out Professional Engagement Network to intentionally include everyone in the workforce.
OPEN'S work towards a diverse, inclusive community continues. It will grow with the help of professionals like you.
SHOWING UP. TAKING ACTION.
OPEN is a completely volunteer-run organization. We show up because we want to create equitable and inclusive workplaces for all LGBTQIA2S+ individuals.
If you have passion for building community and inclusive workplaces, we need you! Our Events and Membership Committees are always looking for passionate individuals to contribute ideas, identities and innovation to make OPEN better.
