    Immediately after Leigh McMillan had coffee with then Whitepages Chief Executive Officer Rob Eleveid, he sent her all the company's financial information. She wasn't even formally interviewing yet. "I've worked for transparent companies in the past, but this was a new level for me," says McMillan, who served as general manager of consumer business before replacing Eleveid as CEO of the Seattle-based identity verification company two years ago.

They support students and educators locally, organizes around LGBTQ-affirming public policy, plans teacher trainings, and hosts events for students, educators, parents, and allies. While some chapters have full-time or part-time staff, most are entirely volunteer-based. Check out GLSEN Washington State for more ways you can help! #GLSEN #pride #education #volunteer
