Regional Affiliate of the YearThe Regional Affiliate of the Year honor is awarded to a regional affiliate that has demonstrated commitment to the Out & Equal mission through exceptional programming and sound organizational practices. The Regional Affiliate of the Year award was given to the NY Fingerlakes Regional Affiliate.
The New York Fingerlakes Regional Affiliate has built impressive coalitions by engaging local companies who are champions of workplace diversity. These coalitions and partners provided the framework for the development of Out & Equal's very first regional Workplace Summit in 2011. The Affiliate has also developed a series of "Work it Out" events for college students to help prepare them for job interviews, while providing a showcase for local businesses to brand their companies as welcoming and affirming. The Affiliate is a true leader in localizing the mission of Out & Equal in the New York Fingerlakes region.
