What roles are there for entry level but some prior experience?

You may be pleasantly surprised by people. I'm a proponent of visibility in the workplace. It may give strength to someone else that you don't realize may be struggling with coming out too. Plus, it's now a part of pop culture to be LGBT; and workplaces are leading the charge with diversity and inclusion initiatives. I leverage this aspect of myself in the workplace and upper management and partners frequently reach out to me to provide me with opportunities for higher visibility in the office strictly because of that aspect of myself.

We are a same-sex couple pursuing surrogacy.

My spouse works for a Fortune 5 company. This company says it stands for equity and inclusion and it offers as an employee benefit coverage for fertility-related medical expenditures.

Specifically, this employer’s fertility benefits provide up to $25,000 for fertility expenditures to heterosexual couples, and $0 to same-sex couples.

How do we contest this inequitable employer policy?
