Moving from Ally to Accomplice: Supporting LGBTQIA Members of Your Organization

June 13, 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.

$35 for Members, $50 for Non-members

 

LANO is pleased to partner with the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits to offer you the fourth webinar in their “Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Nonprofits” series. Does your organization want to learn more about how to effectively include members of the LGBTQIA community? Does everyone in your organization understand what all those letters mean? Could your nonprofit use support with best practices and creating an affirming culture for LGBTQIA colleagues and community members? Join Heather Branham, LCSW and Stephen Wiseman, LCSW of Just Conversations to discover: 

·       Up-to-date terminology and concepts related to the LGBTQIA community

·       Challenges facing LGBTQIA people

·       Ways to create inclusive and affirming organizational culture for people of all genders and sexual orientations.

 

Heather and Stephen are frequent presenters on topics relevant to LGBTQIA communities and consult with professionals and organizations seeking to improve their services to these communities. Their Just Conversations project facilitates nuanced conversations about gender, sexuality, violence, and healing through training, advocacy, and storytelling.
