Imagery Policy

Imagery disclaimer

Out Professionals’ events are open to established and aspiring LGBTQ professionals as well as allies. Appearance in event photos does not imply sexual orientation.

All photographs we use on this site or social media were taken at Out Professionals events or during events where a representative(s) of the organization was participating. We use imagery from our events to promote the values and mission of Out Professionals, including networking and career-enhancing educational events that encourage the opportunity to meet other “out” professionals and allies.

The following policy is effective at in-person Out Professionals events, virtual meetings, webinars where the participant actively participates, and other public events:
