This event is open to the entire medical center and will feature a panel of black LGBTQ+ individuals who work at VUMC answering questions submitted by their VUMC colleagues. People interested in attending are also encouraged to submit their workplace appropriate questions about black LGBTQ+ individuals that they’ve always wondered or have been afraid to ask.
