Emory Executive Education’s LGBTQ Executive Leaders Forum is designed to transform Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer leaders in their approach to the unique challenges faced in today’s business environment. Through this course, you will develop the skill set necessary to bridge the gap between being an advocate within your organization and pushing your organization — and the business community as a whole — to advocate on behalf of the LGBTQ population. The Forum provides executives with access to a powerful network of like-minded peers, to enhance their professional contacts and development.
