Last year we returned for the first time in two years to our in-person Business Equality Luncheon (BEL). We were overjoyed to be joined by over 200 professionals who celebrated LGBTQ+ equality in workplaces across southeastern Wisconsin.
We are excited to welcome you back this year to The Pfister Hotel on Thursday, October 12th, as we host our 2023 Business Equality Luncheon with our keynote speaker, Dr. Jesse Ehrenfeld. Our largest convening event of the year, the BEL celebrates and promotes southeastern Wisconsin as equal, inclusive and fair for all workers in the business community, with a focus on the LGBTQ+ communities.
The BEL is also an opportunity to highlight our recent recipients and growth of the Cream City Foundation LGBTQ+ Scholarship Program.
We are honored to have The Pfister Hotel host us again for this wonderful and important event. Sponsorships and individual tickets can be registered below.
