Pride @ ORS Community Network objectives:

  • Hold network gatherings at in-person meetings when it is safe to do so again
  • Hold virtual meet & greets throughout the year
  • Promote visibility and feature the work of LGBT+ ORS members through channels such as ORS Connect

Raising LGBTQ+ Voices in the ORS Community 

Join us for a virtual panel discussion and networking event aimed at increasing visibility of the Pride @ ORS Community Network and of LGBTQ+ ORS members, especially those in more senior positions. During the session, we will discuss common challenges we face, how the network might help address these challenges and how best to increase visibility and representation within the ORS.

The session will also provide opportunities for trans and non-binary members to share their experiences.

Community Networks give ORS members of all different backgrounds, career levels, and experiences a way to connect with each other. Community Networks are self-identified, organically established communities offering opportunities for members to connect with each other, share experiences, and form life-long friendships and collaborations.
