The Business Leaders Luncheon is where Oregon businesses and corporate opinion leaders take a public stand for fairness and equality. The annual event brings together 500+ business executives, community leaders and elected officials to consider the state of equality in Oregon and promote fairness in the workplace and under the law. The program includes a keynote speaker and recognition for outstanding leadership for gay and transgender equality. 2015 will be a big year for Basic Rights as we launch our new 5-year strategic plan to support lived equality for LGBT individuals outside of Portland, LGBT youth and LGBT seniors.

Oregonians Against Discrimination – Creating a Legacy for Change
Business Leaders Luncheon

Thanks to everyone who attended our annual Business Leaders Luncheon on April 17th!  A record crowd of over 550 business and community leaders gathered at the Oregon Convention Center to stand against discrimination.

It was such an inspiring event! Our emcee, Jonathan Nicolas of Moda Health, guided the audience through a series of special guests who spoke eloquently about  the work being done across our state to advance equality for LGBT Oregonians.  The program culminated with a powerful show of support from the business community to stand together in opposition to the pending Arizona-like discrimination measure.

Mark your calendars for next year’s Luncheon on Thursday, April 23, 2015!
