Fostering LGBTQ + entrepreneurship | Chris Fraley, Board member of StartOut
Founded in 2009 to promote LGBTQ+ equality and fight discrimination in the business world, StartOut has emerged as a leading champion for the LGBTQ+ entrepreneurial community, providing the resources entrepreneurs need to succeed, promoting success, and providing critical research on the economic impacts of LGBTQ+ discrimination. Join Chris Fraley, Vice Chair of the Board of StartOut, as we discuss the evolution of the organization and its work; the state of LGBTQ+ entrepreneurship in the U.S. and in our region; and also the Supreme Court’s recent landmark ruling that federal law protects workers from job discrimination based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, and its impacts on LGBTQ+ entrepreneurship.
