OutNEXT LGBT Emerging Leader Summit

July 21, 2016

In July, associates Erika Skougard, Liz Saxe, and Jeff Bozman represented Covington at the OutNEXT LGBT Emerging Leader Summit in New York. The two-day program brought together professionals in law, finance, government, and business to meet one another and to collaborate in finding solutions to critical issues facing the LGBT community.

The conference featured inspiring discussions with Jim Obergefell, plaintiff in the landmark marriage case Obergefell v. Hodges, and Billy Porter, a Tony- and Grammy-winning performer. Executives offered strategies for personal branding and shared best practices in developing allies within organizations. Focus groups also designed creative approaches to a variety of issues, including employment discrimination and anti-LGBT legislation.

The team returned to Washington with growing LinkedIn in-boxes, energized by new ideas and great conversations with new colleagues and by even stronger bonds among the Covington delegation.
