LGBTQ+ Summit 2023: All Work is Work

October 27, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

All service providers, non-profits, County employees, and community members in Santa Clara County are invited to participate.

The County of Santa Clara LGBTQ+ Summit is dedicated to promoting equity and belonging within traditionally underrepresented work industries. Our fifth annual summit brings together LGBTQ+ professionals, allies, and advocates to explore how the LGBTQ+ community can excel and make innovative contributions across various sectors.

Every work contribution, no matter how small or unconventional, plays a part in advancing the rights and well-being of LGBTQ+ people, emphasizing the importance and validity of all forms of work and encouraging inclusion, collaboration, and the celebration of diversity within the LGBTQ+ movement. Through engaging discussions, panel sessions, and keynote speeches, summit attendees will gain valuable insights into the challenges faced by LGBTQ+ individuals in industries such as construction, food services, the arts, and more.

Join us in empowering LGBTQ+ professionals to make their mark and inspire change in the workplace. All Work is Work, and together, we can achieve LGBTQ+ excellence in any field.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.



There is no cost for participation, but registration is required and each attendee must register individually. Registration will not be available on the day of the event.
