Coming Out in the Workplace

Thursday, January 20, 2011 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Please join us for the first part of a two-part series about being out in the workplace. LGBTQ attorneys and law students must constantly consider whether to be out in the workplace, with whom to be out, and the possible consequences of being out. Each choice may result in different stressors. Coming out can lead to discrimination and hardship. Not being out can be equally daunting, as you may strain to talk about yourself without revealing partners, friends, or participation in LGBTQ-identified activities.

The first panel, "Coming Out in the Workplace," will provide an opportunity to talk about our own experiences, to learn from others, and to hear from a panel on efforts to create an educated and equal workplace. The panel will include several lawyers and a clinical psychologist who frequently counsels lawyers through such challenging situations.

Following the two-hour panel discussion will be a one-hour reception with drinks and appetizers.

This event is co-sponsored by the Massachusetts LGBTQ Bar Association and Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers.
