Call for Proposals: 2016 LGBTQ Education Summits
These 2 day events will include LGBTQ inclusive professional development through workshops and panels. We will share toolkits and strategies for supporting LGBTQ students, offer social events, and hear brave testimonies that inspire our collective impact. Because leadership development is a key aspect of programming at the summits, we will offer a diverse set of learning experiences and topics aligned with 5 tracks: Direct Student Support, Family and Community Engagement, Policy and Advocacy, School Culture and Climate, and Teacher Preparation. There are three themes that guide what is most meaningful about our Summits: learn with dignity, teach with dignity, and lead with dignity. That’s the essence of #BraveEducation!

Please complete this survey if interested in submitting a proposal for a workshop at one or more of our LGBTQ Education Summits. Acceptance of your proposal will be determined by a number of factors including but not limited to projected attendance or projected interest, impact, and/or originality amid other proposals. We look forward to having some amazing Professional Development and Dialogue at each of our summits.
