OUT Leadership hosted their annual VIP Dinner prior to the Leadership Conference earlier this week at the Bank of America Tower.
Advice: Highly consider working for BOA solely because of the view the 51st floor provides.
I always leave these events feeling inspired. OUT manages to always have speakers that engage the audience in thoughtful discussions. Ken Mehlman of KKR and David Mixner, human rights activist and author, held a captivating talk during dinner.
Mixner made a striking comment that stuck with me.
He said to make it unacceptable for your friends not to be registered to vote this year. He recommended not inviting friends who are not registered to vote to any social gatherings to further prove how important this election is for LGBT activists and allies. I couldn't agree more. This upcoming election is too important to not vote. He said "we have worked too hard to get here to have everything we have worked for taken away."
