OPEN Launches New Nonprofit to Support Career Development for LGBTQ+ Workers
A bold new nonprofit organization has recently been established to support career development for members of the LGBTQ+ community. The organization, OPEN Foundation, provides resources, tools, and community support to LGBTQ+ individuals as they pursue their professional and career goals.
OPEN Foundation was founded by Heidi Duss, and enthusiastically advocated for, and supported by OPEN Board members and the OPEN Member community. A strong advocate for LGBTQ+ rights in the workplace, Heidi is passionate about creating a more equitable and inclusive world and believes that OPEN Foundation can help make this a reality by providing support and guidance to those who may otherwise be held back in their career due to their gender identity or sexual orientation.
OPEN Foundation will offer a range of services to its members, including:
- An online professional resource hub,
- Comprehensive career mentoring and coaching,
- Informative group workshops and seminars for early career workers and people transitioning in their careers, and
- Access to exclusive job and internship offers.
OPEN Foundation is now seeking partnerships and funding. Those who are interested in supporting the organization can visit openmadison.org/openfoundation for more information.
