Why Join?

Gather with informed and like-minded individuals! 
Attend OPEN events and develop or strengthen your connections among the LGBTQ professional community. 

Be visible! 

There are many LGBTQ leaders in the Madison community. However, because we tend to look like other professionals and business executives, we have literally been hidden in plain sight. Being invisible diminishes opportunities to lead and to learn from one another. It creates a sense of being alone in the universe.  Join OPEN and be visible!

Help us grow the organization.  

OPEN is working to become a resource for area businesses that want to enhance their understanding of and relationship to the LGBTQ community.  In becoming a member, you show your support for our work towards building a community of exceptional LGBTQ leaders in Madison and Dane County.

People are the most important ingredient of any organization.  Come join us; become a member of OPEN and make a difference in our community!
