About This Event

Fiverr is a proud partner of GA's Pride Summit, a weeklong festival of free workshops, speaker sessions and panel discussions focused on looking at the world through a more inclusive lens with a spotlight on queer creators, founders, and organizers. Check out the full schedule here!

A tremendous amount of attention is dedicated to making workplace environments more diverse and inclusive. Yet, despite concentrated effort, women, people of color, and members of the LGBTQ+ community continue to face implicit and explicit barriers in the workplace, and are underrepresented in management and senior leadership positions. Join us at this panel discussion where LGBTQ+ professionals from diverse backgrounds share their personal stories of career surprise, heartache, and triumph.
