We are currently accepting program proposals to be presented at the TransPride Pittsburgh Health and Wellness Conference to be held Oct 6th-8th, 2022
This year our conference will be held virtually.
The proposal can be for a seminar, presentation, panel, workshop, discussion group, activity/performance space, fellowship activity, arts and crafts, etc.
We will consider all submissions, and will give preference to fresh ideas.
An Outline of your workshop: A breakdown of how the time will used throughout the workshop, providing as much information about the audience experience and the presentation flow as possible. We recommend at least outlining the workshop in increments of 10-15 minutes.
A clear sense of how long you need: Workshops can be 1hour, 1.5hours, or 2hours. A clear understanding of how long your workshop will take is key.
A description of your program: Should be enough to give the committee a strong sense of the workshop’s content. This description may be used for promotional materials and programs, so be sure that it clearly identifies the goals and outcomes of attendance. For descriptions, more is more. The shorter a description you give, the harder it is for committee to review it and score it. We’d rather edit them down later, so give us more!
A list of presenters: Including the following information for each presenter: Name, pronouns, email, age, race, ethnicity, gender, professional title, address, and bio.
A list of goals/objectives for your workshop (minimum of 2): What do you want attendees to learn or accomplish during this program?
Sample Content (optional but encouraged if available): This could be notes for your workshop, slides, a video of a previous workshop. This sample need not be extensive, but something that can be digested in under ten minutes, to give the selection committee a clear sense of your workshop's content. Email to TransPridePgh@gmail.com
Target Audience: Who is this for? The more specific or direct you can be, the easier it is for the selection committee to balance the overall conference’s content slate.
