Claiming Our Authenticity to Thrive at Work


For people who come out later in life, it can feel like they have a lot to lose. Rev. Anne-Marie Zanzal is here to say that when she came out at 50, she gained everything. In this talk, Rev. Zanzal, founder of LGBTQIA+ coaching company Coming Out & Beyond, will share her coming out story, how her company serves the needs of her new community, and how claiming her queerness helped her become a successful entrepreneur and business owner.
