LEAF, Inc. Dignity & Inclusive School Cultures:  Leadership at Every Level 
Saturday, September 30 / 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Cost: $159 per person, includes lunch and materials.

Regardless of race or creed, people who identify as LGBTQ+ experience dignity violations at rates that are disproportionate to other marginalized groups. Many of these violations are rooted in bias, intolerance, or lack of understanding.

Since knowledge is power, this workshop will provide school leaders with the opportunity to hear from experts and increase their knowledge and skills to provide effective leadership for the protection, acceptance and dignity of LGBTQ students, staff and school community members.

Resources will be provided to assist participants to create and ensure a welcoming and affirming environment for all students and staff in their school communities.
