2018 Delaware SHRM State Conference Keynote Speakers

Sarah McBride

 National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign

Sarah McBride is the National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign

Sarah will be presenting her personal story, as well as, an array of topics that impact the LGBTQ workforce and best practices for employers creating inclusive workplaces

In 2012, Sarah made national headlines when she came out as transgender while serving as student body president at American University. A native of Wilmington, Delaware, Sarah serves on the Board of Directors of Equality Delaware, the state’s primary LGBTQ-advocacy organization. In that capacity, Sarah helped lead the successful effort to add gender identity and expression to her state’s nondiscrimination and hate-crimes laws. In 2008, Sarah worked for Governor Jack Markell (D-DE) and, in 2010, for former Attorney General Beau Biden (D-DE). Prior to coming to HRC, Sarah interned at the White House, the first out trans woman to do so.

Sarah became the first openly transgender person to address a major party political convention when she spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. She is the author of Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality.
