Making the Business Case for Investing in the Leadership Development of LGBTQ Colleagues

Pride: Championing LGBTQIA+ Leaders & Allies

Inclusive leadership isn't just a checkbox—it's a strategic business advantage. According to Slack’s "The State of Work 2023" survey, 82% of employees cite happiness and engagement as key drivers of productivity. This level of engagement thrives in a culture where employees feel accepted and have opportunities for growth. It’s time to take a data-driven approach to prove the significant benefits and positive impacts that fostering LGBTQ leadership can bring to an organization. Join PILOT’s Founder & CEO, Ben Brooks, to learn how investing in diversity and inclusion can drive innovation, employee engagement, and business success.

Ben Brooks

Ben Brooks is the founder & CEO of PILOT, an award-winning employee career development software platform. Inspired by his successful CEO & executive coaching practice, Ben saw an opportunity to democratize executive coaching and empower employees at scale. He invested his life savings into founding the company with a mission of ensuring everyone “feels powerful at work.” PILOT was named #1 HR Tech Startup to Watch in 2020 and HR Executive Magazine named him one of the Top 100 Influencers in HR & Technology in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. PILOT was named a Top HR Product of 2020. Previously, Ben held a number of leadership and management roles at Lockheed Martin, Oliver Wyman, and Marsh & McLennan Companies, where his last role was as SVP of HR, where he was named a “rising star” by HR Executive Magazine and later was featured on its cover for his innovative work in human capital. He started his career at Enterprise Rent-a-car. In the community, Ben served on the board of directors for Out Serve-SLDN, the organization that spearheaded the successful effort to end the Department of Defense's discriminatory Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, and he co-founded the LGBT employee resource group at his management consulting firm (that continues to thrive a decade later). He's a proud graduate of the University of Denver's Daniels College of Business and has resided in Manhattan for a decade.
