Through group activities, small group discussion and large group sharing, we will all become better LGBTQIA+ allies in action!

You will leave with language, tools and support to boost LGBTQIA+ inclusion from a space where it is okay to mess up and grow from there.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will be able to more appropriately engage LGBTQIA+ participants by practicing inclusive language and empathizing with the experiences of others.
2. Participants will be able to recognize challenges in outdoor recreation encountered by the LGBTQIA+community, assess their own programs, and formulate a plan to respond to those challenges.
3. Participants will connect with others invested in LGBTQIA+ inclusive programs, share ideas for change, and build a support network to continue to address challenges beyond the conference.
