    How do you pronounce it?

    /ˈkôrp(ə)rət/ ← unless you’re a librarian or etymologist, this probably isn’t helpful

    Qorporate is pronounced **just like the word “corporate.”** The Q is our queer, fun spin on a word that has traditionally been associated with very serious people in suits peering over cubicles. Hard pass.


  • How does membership work?

    Companies of all shapes and sizes are welcome to join the council at the level that works for them. See outintech.com/sponsor for more info about how we typically partner with companies.

    They appoint a delegate who becomes the primary liaison between our two organizations, routing various opportunities and action items to the appropriate people or teams internally at their orgs. We also ask for a backup delegate so that we have a point of contact during leaves of absence, holidays, or if someone leaves without appointing a new delegate.

    We started with a founding cohort of thirty-five (35) companies in 2019. We’re now accepting new member companies on a rolling basis.
