Spotlight Speaker Tyler Cargill (he/they) will present Knowing Your Rights: The 16 Protected Traits for LGBTQIA+ Businesses in Washington, DC

This training will explore the protected traits under the DC Human Rights Act (DCHRA) in the contexts of "employment" and "public accommodations." Although the District recognizes 23 protected traits, this session will focus on 16 traits particularly relevant to the LGBTQIA+ business community. The goal of this training is to equip businesses with a foundational understanding of the protections available to them as employers, employees, and within their business spaces.


Tyler Cargill, training specialist with the DC Office of Human Rights, is a dynamic genderfluid educator, anthropologist researcher, and advocate specializing in diversity, equity, and inclusion with over 17 years of experience. His passion for fostering dialogue and understanding across various communities has driven him to spearhead training programs, develop outreach strategies, and cultivate relationships to promote human rights and inclusion.



Equality Chamber of Commerce and the Equality Chamber Foundation, in collaboration with TraxMethod, strive to serve its members and the business community by providing educational and informational seminars. Our goal is to gather experts in our community to discuss topics critical to small businesses and organizations. 

We believe it is our responsibility to offer the community an opportunity to hear from experts so that they can make decisions based on the facts and facilitate factually-based discussions. We want to be a conduit through which the community can obtain information, drive discussions, and make their own decisions.

The Rise and Grind Speaker Series allows you to keep up on current events and topics of interest locally and regionally. Business owners, organizational leaders, HR professionals, marketers, and small businesses will find these topics helpful as they are designed to educate and inform about subjects that are relevant to your local business and non-profit community. In addition, business owners and organizational leaders can promote their business before the workday even begins. Also, these breakfasts focus on networking and give attendees the chance to exchange business cards and develop new prospects.
