Equity in Action: Creating Safe Spaces
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
The National Landing BID is proud to present the next installment in its Equity in Action Event series, "Creating Safe Spaces". To close out Pride Month, this virtual discussion will highlight the importance of the business community and its executives in defining, shaping and defending safe spaces for LGBTQ+ community members beyond June. Filmed live at Freddie's Beach Bar, known to be Northern Virginia's only LGBTQ+, straight friendly restaurant and bar, the conversation will feature a panel of local business leaders representing the LGBTQ+ community, including Freddie Lutz, owner of Freddie's Beach Bar and Federico Ristorante Italiano, Lisa Kohn, Senior Manager of Public Policy at Amazon, and Morgen Hunt, President of Horizon Paramedical LLC and the Equality Chamber of Commerce. The panel will be moderated by local media personality, Tommy McFly (NBC4) and will include an audience Q&A portion. Equity in Action is a free community educational program launched by the BID in 2021 that is designed to encourage and drive conversation. This series builds on the BID's ongoing efforts and commitment to strengthening diversity and equity in the region. To improve fairness and drive engagement over the past year, the BID created its own internal Equity Committee, had its staff and board of directors participate in trainings on the topic and signed on as an official DEI partner with Arlington County.
