TWC is building partnerships with local and national employee resource groups to assist in providing social experiences for their employees. Our partners have the unique opportunity to access events where employees are able to socialize with co-workers and other members of the LGBTQ community, while all of the logistical work required in planning and executing the events is left to TWC.
How does it work?
We ask that each corporate partner assign a point person to work with TWC HQ to select experiences they think would be most beneficial for their employees. Four times per year, TWC will have specific opportunities for employee resource groups to join social programming and encourage their members to attend. These experiences include cultural, sports, and travel and are outlined in the calendar below. We'll work with each partner individually to grant them access to those events and create more meaningful programming for their employees.
Each year TWC will have four primary events that have a specific employee resource group component built in. Those groups can gain early access to high demand events that typically sell out in a few hours or a few days. We'll also hold a certain number of seats for your group while ensuring that all employees are sitting together. If you'd like to have one point person purchasing tickets and then distributing them at a pre-party nearby, we can do that. Want your employees to be able to buy tickets themselves but sit with other employees? We can make that happen as well.
The Boston Ballet's Nutcracker
December 9, 2015 | 7:30pm
Critics call the Boston Ballet's Nutcracker "the most magical version of The Nutcracker" while the Boston Globe states, "The dancing, even more than the gemstones, shines." Join The Welcoming Committee, and other Boston ERG's, to experience a grand production performed in the iconic Boston Opera House. After the performance wraps up we'll all venture to the Ritz Carlton's Avery Bar for post-production cocktails and mingling.
To ensure that your members are all sitting together, while purchasing their tickets individually, simply follow the instructions at the bottom of this page. If you'd prefer to purchase all of the tickets on behalf of your group, go here, find your company's ticket, and purchase as many tickets as you need!
Boston's annual ski trip to Vermont
January/February of 2016
Each year The Welcoming Committee brings 150+ LGBTQ folks to a Vermont mountain for skiing, snowboarding, tubing, and mingling. We'll be announcing dates and tickets for this experience soon!
Boston Red Sox game
Our annual outing to Fenway Park gets bigger each year. Starting with 500 TWC members and jumping to 750, this is a great day out at the ballgame! Just before the game we'll head to a nearby spot to grab a drink and mingle with other TWC members until we head to the stands!
Late Summer/Early Fall 2016
With partners like the Institute of Contemporary Art and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, The Welcoming Committee provides opportunities to learn more about Boston's art scene. Whether exploring the story of Isabella while sipping on cocktails or discovering new contemporary art during one of the ICA's harbor parties, TWC provides a great opportunity for employees to discover what's happening in their city.
