NSW: Coming Out and Staying Out

Everyone deserves a fearless start to their career.

Out for Australia would like to welcome you to the event ‘Coming Out and Staying Out: A Fearless Start to Your Career’ in partnership with Herbert Smith Freehills.

This event will uncover the unique challenges faced by LGBTQI+ individuals in their early careers, particularly focusing on the complexities of coming out and staying out in the workplace.

It will explore the experiences of various panel speakers who will share their journeys of coming out in the workplace and how this has helped them thrive in their careers.

This event will assist LGBTQI+ people in their early careers with navigating the complexities of bringing their whole selves to work and will be an opportunity for employers to understand how to better support them.

Drinks and canapes will be provided and there will be opportunities to network with a diverse group of LGBTQI+ professionals and allies.

Accessibility: Wheelchair access and gender-neutral bathrooms will be available.
Dress: Anything you feel comfortable in
