The Out Professional Engagement Network's (OPEN) Engagement Committee is hosting our first panel discussion on racism within Madison's LGBTQ community. We will have panelists discussing their own experiences with racism in our community, and will have an opportunity for attendees to ask live questions regarding the discussion topics. The networking begins at 5:45, with the panel discussion immediately following. We will provide light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages for this event.

 

The OPEN Engagement Committee was formed to break down barriers between the LGBTQ+ community and other marginalized communities and embrace our intersectionality. The Engagement Committee supports intersectionality of the LGBTQ+ identity with other historically marginalized or oppressed groups, such as those who experience discrimination and oppression because of class, race, ethnicity, ability, and/or religious creed. The Committee provides our members with the resources they need to build common cause with other groups to support collaborative action.

 

Attendance Price: Free to members and non-members
