Economic Impact of Marriage Equality Panel Discussion
June 25, 2013 -- 5:30pm - 8:00pm

23rd Floor Auditorium 

MetLife, GLAM (Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transgenders and Allies at MetLife), Out & Equal Metro NYC and MetLife's Legal Affairs Diversity Committee invite you to celebrate pride month by attending an engaging panel discussion to learn more about the potential financial implications of marriage equality on the public sector, private sector, small businesses and LGBT individuals and couples. 


In light of forthcoming decisions from the United States Supreme Court regarding the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Proposition 8 in California, the potential economic impact of marriage equality is a topic that is more relevant today than ever before. With leaders from Human Rights Campaign (HRC), The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and subject matter experts in the areas of employee benefits, personal finance and estate planning, the panel discussion and Q&A session are sure to provide diverse perspectives you won't want to miss. Be sure to RSVP if you'd like to attend, as space will be limited.
