About Dominic Longo, PH.D.

Dominic Longo brings queer perspectives to leadership development and coaching. He founded Flourishing Gays as a social enterprise to create learning experiences that help clients grow into fuller versions of themselves, through special attention to the particularities of queer developmental journeys.

He believes that flourishing is what we are all made for, yet sees how myriad obstacles keep the weird and wonderful potential of every person pushed down in various ways. Dominic understands leadership development as the process of unlocking this potential within all of us to become more fully human and more fully alive.

On his own journey into greater wholeness and flourishing, Dominic’s path has traversed scholarly and professional work across the United States, Middle East, and Europe.  

Previously, as director of a university center for interreligious dialogue, Dominic supported students, faculty, and staff to bridge differences of culture and worldview. As a management consultant at McKinsey serving clients in the Middle East and the United States, Dominic designed and directed large-scale programs transforming organizational cultures and building capabilities. There he also founded an Employee Resource Group for allies of LGBTQ+ colleagues.

He is a Professional Certified Coach and holds a Ph.D. in Arabic and Islamic Studies from Harvard University. A citizen of the United States and Italy, Dominic grew up in Nebraska and now lives with his partner in New York City.
