The event will be a panel discussion about diversity and LGBT politics with panelists from the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce discussing how diversity is addressed within the LGBT movement.

Also, they are open to discussing how to get involved in LGBT advocacy work and will give various suggestions on how to do so.
