Trucks In Texas Have Huge Signs Saying “Trans Lives Are Precious”

Trucks displaying positive messages like “Trans lives are precious” were driven around Texas’s state capital during Transgender Awareness Week in a pointed message about the state’s government. After lawmakers in Austin spent a year attacking transgender youth – forcing trans young people, their families, and activists to go to the state capitol time and again to fight misinformation and prejudice – now the city is getting a positive message about trans people. The online trans and queer health care platform Folx Health put the trucks on the streets of Austin with trans-positive messages like the one above, as well as “Protect trans youth.” Another message on the trucks is the name of the platform itself.

Baker Tilly Appoints Shane Lloyd as Head of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Leading advisory CPA firm Baker Tilly US, LLP (Baker Tilly) appoints Shane Lloyd as head of diversity, inclusion and belonging, reporting to CEO Alan Whitman. He is the first executive in this dedicated role for Baker Tilly where its diversity, inclusion and belonging strategy is embedded into all aspects of its business.

Lloyd was first introduced to Baker Tilly as a lead consultant at Cook Ross, an organizational development firm hired by Baker Tilly to assess its diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strategy and plan.

“Shane has tremendous ability to lead with both intellect and empathy, while setting the bar high for how we can keep getting better as an organization,” said Baker Tilly CEO Alan Whitman. “Personally, I felt challenged and inspired by the perspectives he brought.”

Following Cook Ross, Lloyd joined Amazon to advance their DEI efforts first within its Worldwide Consumer organization as the inclusion and engagement lead, and then as the Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion learning leader. He has experience working in higher education at Brown and Yale Universities and in public health.

“I was drawn to Baker Tilly’s commitment to building the competencies and skills necessary to drive meaningful change,” Lloyd said. “Diversity and inclusion work means taking a methodical look at systems, and it also means going off script, valuing calculated disruption and taking risks. Baker Tilly embraces all of that.”

Lloyd holds a bachelor’s degree in behavioral neuroscience from Northeastern University and a master’s degree in public health from Brown University. Lloyd serves as the vice chair for the Maryland Montgomery County Racial Equity and Social Justice Advisory Committee and holds advisory roles in several non-profit organizations.

Coalition of Tech Companies and Academic Experts Launch Unprecedented Report to Transform Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Outcomes within Tech Industry OutBuro LGBTQ

Coalition of Tech Companies and Academic Experts Launch Unprecedented Report to Transform Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Outcomes within Tech Industry

Over 30 CEOs and Leaders from Leading Tech Companies Pledge to Take Action and Drive Change

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today a coalition of 29 leading diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) experts from academia and the tech industry released a new report, Action to Catalyze Tech (ACT), which calls on tech companies to commit to bold, collective action by open-sourcing DEI best practices, encouraging collaboration on systemic solutions, and increasing accountability to drive change.

Convened by the Aspen Institute, the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), PwC, and Snap Inc., a cross-industry working group partnered for over a year to aggregate relevant, research-based actions that businesses can take to help radically improve DEI outcomes. The ACT Report compiles this research in one place and provides a blueprint and tools for companies at all stages — from startups to mature organizations — to implement to drive internal and sector-wide change. The full report is available here: https://actreport.com/.

Over 30 CEOs and executives from leading technology organizations, including Airbnb, Apple, Dropbox, Etsy, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, Salesforce, Spotify, and Uber, have committed to being founding signatories of the ACT Report, pledging to hold themselves and their companies accountable to accelerate progress toward achieving DEI success. Together, these founding signatories represent more than 500,000 tech employees.

As part of the pledge, company signatories commit to developing company-specific strategies for pursuing or enhancing activity around the report’s four recommendations, which include:

  • Model and incentivize inclusive leadership, including by recognizing DEI as a business imperative.
  • Operationalize DEI throughout the business by applying a framework to address how to spend money (supplier diversity), design and build products (product inclusion), and think about talent.
  • Share DEI demographic data with a new industry partner, the Tech Equity Accountability Mechanism, incubated by the Aspen Institute, with the goal of creating industry-wide standards for reporting such data.
  • Transform future pathways into tech for underrepresented talent, including by helping solve the acute lack of computer science teachers from underrepresented backgrounds.

The tech industry remains dominated by white men,” said Vivian Schiller, Executive Director of Aspen Digital, a program of the Aspen Institute. “Justice for underrepresented communities requires sustained commitment, transparency, and accountability from leadership, and that’s what we strive toward with Catalyze Tech. We are glad that so many tech companies are committing to implement recommendations made in this report, and eager to support the sector on the path to true equity.”

Increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion is more than a numbers game. True change occurs when company leaders remove the systemic biases and barriers to fostering inclusive organizational cultures,” said Lucy Sanders, CEO and Founder, NCWIT. “It is imperative that we continue to call upon tech companies to take action, and contribute to making the tech industry a more accurate reflection of a broad society.”

So often the tech industry moves fast and shoots for the stars — yet when it comes to diversity and inclusion, the industry’s progress has been agonizingly slow. It is long past time for urgency and accountability, and the ACT Report sets out a tangible roadmap for companies of all sizes,” said Oona King, Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Snap Inc. and the Chair of the Catalyze Tech Working Group. “Collective action is key, and needs everyone in business — from CEOs to interns — to be inspired to act.”

Diversity, equity and inclusion must be treated with the same prioritization, investment and rigor as other C-Suite priorities — it demands collaboration, accountability and transparency to help accelerate systemic and sustainable change,” said Shannon Schuyler, Chief Purpose & Inclusion Officer at PwC US. “The commitments laid out in the ACT report strive to do just that, from the talent we hire, to the suppliers we work with, to the products we create — inspiring a culture of belonging should be felt through every corner of an organization if we are to drive change at scale.”

The full list of companies that have signed on to commit to the report’s recommendations at launch are: Airbnb; Apple; Ariel Investments; Cisco; DoorDash; Dropbox; Etsy; Google; Headspace Health; Justworks; LinkedIn; Maven; Netflix; Nextdoor; PwC; Ro; Salesforce; Snap; Spotify; Twitter; Uber; Vimeo; Warby Parker; and Wipro; along with PledgeLA and the companies that form the Alliance for Global Inclusion: Applied Materials, Dell, Intel, Micron Technology, Nasdaq, and NTT Data.

On November 3, Catalyze Tech will convene the first annual DEI Innovation Summit, which will bring together CEOs and leaders from signatory companies, DEI experts, and advocates to discuss cross-industry alignment, and how to put the report’s recommendations into action. The Summit, held virtually, will begin at 9:00 a.m. PT, and it will be available to watch for free here.

Learn more about this effort at ACTReport.com.

About Catalyze Tech

Catalyze Tech is a new initiative to align the tech industry around collective action for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), based on the belief that outcomes cannot be transformed by any one leader or company alone. They are an industry-wide challenge that must be tackled by working together.

The coalition’s founding recommendations, released in its Action to Catalyze Tech (ACT) Report, were developed over the course of a year by a cross-industry working group of academics, DEI experts, think tanks, and tech companies, with the goal of bringing companies together to define industry standards for DEI and determine and commit to the collective action needed to solve systemic inequity in tech.

The working group that developed the report included experts and academics from AnitaB.org; Aspen Digital, a program of the Aspen Institute; Bennington College; Brookings Institution; Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions, University of Texas at El Paso; Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology; Coqual; CSforAll; Expanding Diversity and Gender Equity in Tech (EDGE in Tech)™ Initiative at the University of California; Google; Harvard Business School; IncluSTEM; Kapor Center; LA-Tech.org; Management Leadership for Tomorrow; National Center for Women & Information Technology; Powered By Decisions, LLC; PwC; QSIDE Institute; Reboot Representation; Scholastic Education Solutions; Snap Inc.; University of Massachusetts Amherst; and the Women and Public Policy Program at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Black Business Owners, Celebrities, Influencers, and Leaders Gather with Visa at CEO’s Making Waves for Black Women in Business, Helping Corporations Fulfill Commitment to Equality and Inclusion

Two-Day Conference Provides Vital Resources for Black Women in Business

OAKLAND, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On October 26th and 27th, CEO’s Making Waves for Black Women In Business: Growth, Impact, & Community will kick off a two-day conference by welcoming Black women-owned businesses, industry leaders, and corporations in addressing the need for systemic change in leadership, gender, and race equality in a variety of different industries.

The two-day event will feature discussions from black business owners such as influencer Necole Kane – CEO/Founder of XONecole and Whitney Harper (Brand Manager/Creative Director for Rapper Sweetie) and (Host) Sports Broadcaster Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, along with many other amazing business professionals in different sectors who will share their insights on relevant topics and resources aimed at enhancing the approaches of Black professionals and CEO’s. By strengthening woman-owned companies within the Black community, CEO’s Making Waves will work on closing the 90% wealth gap faced by Black women in business today.

“This is a much-needed event to support the Black women in our communities starting in California with the large tech companies,” says Myeshia Jefferson, founder of Beauty Makes Cents LLC, a company dedicated to increasing entrepreneurial education through events, training, hands-on support, and empowerment.

Jefferson continues, “CEO’s Making Waves will help attendees tap into resources they may not know are available. Many black-owned businesses don’t need a handout, we need a hand up. As a Black entrepreneur, I understand firsthand the struggle of navigating the business world, and the challenges that Black women in business face to get access to the right people and positions that can open doors. Sometimes, we need more hands-on support to guide us to the next level. Many of the large organizations have the means and the resources to help.”

Aiming to connect start-ups and small business owners to companies with resources and mentors available for Black entrepreneurs, the event will act as a foundation for future growth and opportunities. Featuring an impressive lineup of keynote speakers, discussion panels, fireside chats, mentorship sessions, and workshops, CEO’s Making Waves will touch on a wide range of topics, such as entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, the future of e-commerce, the entertainment industry, sports, wellness, women empowerment, and recruiting.

“This year will have virtual celebrity appearances from Akon, Niecy Nash, Tamar Braxton, and more; but next year we will host the event in-person where we can include interactive activities such as dancing, live music, and a yacht experience! We see this as a great opportunity for black women entrepreneurs to connect, network, and grow,” says Jefferson.

CEO’s Making Waves 2021 participants will also have the chance to win mentorships from top industry leaders through an exclusive guest contest. Organizations can make this an opportunity to build trust and loyalty, while more Black women gain access and support.

Registration is open to all. Remaining space is filling up quickly, so get your tickets soon! Visit CEO’s Making Waves to secure your tickets and learn more.

University of Michigan Band Shows Halftime Show Support For LGBTQ+ Community OutBuro LGBT professional entrepreneur online networking community gay lesbian bisexual transgender

University of Michigan Band Shows Halftime Show Support For LGBTQ+ Community

The University of Michigan marching band celebrated the school’s LGBTQ+ students, staff, and supporters on Saturday with a homecoming halftime show dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the university’s Spectrum Center — a space at the school that supports, advocates, and educates around LGBTQ+ topics. Music from the performance included hits from Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Kim Petras, Andrew Gold, Sister Sledge, and Cyndi Lauper. John Pasquale, a professor of conducting and the director of the university’s marching band, told The Advocate that he wanted to make a public statement in support of his students and in support of the Spectrum Center. “I was proud to do it. We just, as a community, came together and there it is.” He said the show took about seven to eight months to plan and coordinate. He then said

“The point we were trying to make is that love is love. And love wins.”
