    Katie Perkins

    Hello! My name is Katie Perkins (she/her) and I'm an LGBTQ+ advocate. After spending a decade working in the healthcare industry, I made a career transition into business to help further diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts in the workplace. I created the LGBTQ+ Workplace Education Center with the goal to provide high-quality training courses that are easily accessible and affordable for businesses and organizations of all sizes. Now, I help Human Resources teams gain a deeper understanding of their LGBTQ+ employees. I'm passionate about teaching others the elements of LGBTQ+ cultural competency and how to create affirming spaces for those in the LGBTQ+ community. I strive to make my content approachable, practical, and comfortable for all learners. My experience includes working with nonprofits, startups, consulting for corporate clients, and even launching an LGBTQ+ Resource Center. I train hundreds of professionals annually - K-12, colleges & universities, Fortune 500 companies, recruiting firms, consulting agencies, and everywhere in between. This work has led to being featured in newspaper articles, newscasts, podcasts, diversity & inclusion panels, conference workshops, and many collaboration events. I am a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and I love sharing my experiences and knowledge with others!
