Beck Bailey

Director, Workplace Equality Program, Human Rights Campaign

As Director of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Workplace Equality Program, Beck Bailey focuses on helping America’s largest and most successful business become more lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) inclusive through direct consultation and education as well as research and publication on corporate best practices. He regularly supports corporate stakeholders – from the C-suite to the shop floor – in building greater LGBTQ-inclusion through public speaking, facilitated workshops, customized training and in one-on-one consultation.

During his tenure at HRC, Bailey has engaged hundreds of corporations in deepening their impact by supporting legislative action to create workplace protections for LGBTQ people or to actively oppose legislative efforts to undermine equality.

Prior to joining the Human Rights Campaign in 2014, Bailey spent 25 years in the private sector in operations and change management roles. As an LGBTQ advocate and out transgender man, he often speaks about his personal experience as a way to increase awareness and understanding. Bailey proudly serves on the Advisory Board for Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA). He holds a BS in Management from Virginia Tech and an MBA from the Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst.
