Apply to Facilitate a Workshop at Lead with Pride: U of T’s annual LGBTQ Student Leadership Conference

The Lead with Pride Organizing Committee* is looking for students, staff, community members, and educators with knowledge and tools to share with LGBTQ+ students at U of T!
Lead with Pride is a two-day community building and skill development conference for LGBTQ+ students at U of T, taking place on February 6th and February 7th, 2015 and are looking for new workshops. The goal of the conference is to provide students with the opportunity to gain practical knowledge, skills and ideas to support them as student leaders or leaders to be. The conference also encourages conversations across difference within the LGBTQ community, working towards the development of a more inclusive and diverse LGBTQ student community on the University of Toronto campuses.

Now in its 6th year, Lead with Pride provides skills and tools for LGBTQ+ students to improve leadership, practice self-care, and combat oppression, racism, and queerphobia. This year we are welcoming new ideas! Pursuing a peer-education model, we strongly encourage alumni and students to apply. Everyone is welcome to suggest a workshop without their content fully developed and additional support will be available to all facilitators to prepare for the conference. The length of all workshops will be 1 hour – 1.5 hours.

Deadline for Applications: December 15th, 2014.

The Committee will confirm your involvement no later than December 19th, 2014, and may provide you with small suggestions in order to better prepare your workshop for the specifics of the conference. The deadline for confirming the final version of the workshop is January 30th.
