October 6, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Leadership Great South Coast, in partnership with community, are delivering the Take a Step Forward: LGBTIQA+ Diversity and Inclusion Conference, and Evening Celebratory and Networking Event.
The conference and celebratory event aim to foster inclusion for the LGBTIQA+ community within the Great South Coast region because inclusion is vitally important for positive mental, physical, social and emotional health.
This event provides the opportunity for organisations and community members in the Great South Coast region to have a better understanding of:
• How they can be more inclusive of members of the LGBTIQA+ community in their organisations and the wider community.
• The challenges faced by members of the LGBTIQA+ community every day.
Individuals and organisations will be given the opportunity to start connections and networks with other individuals and organisations working in the LGBTIQA+ space.
