1 Clock Hour | Domain G: Meeting and Event Design

These days, the word “ally” is thrown around a lot, but what does it mean to be a true ally? This program will walk participants through assumptions and stereotypes of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and heterosexual people so that they can best serve and include LGBT employees, participants, volunteers, and members as advocates. Simply taking into consideration heteronormative language can build more inclusive programming that will immediately increase retention and connection.

Learner Outcomes:

  • To identify stereotypes, derogatory terms, and other assumptions for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and heterosexual people;
  • To recognize the U.S. cultural need for binaries when examining sexual identities; and
  • Improve current meeting and event design to be inclusive and mindful of diverse members, volunteers, participants, and employees.
