Workshop Description

Through group activities, small group discussion and large group sharing, we will all become LGBTQIA+
allies in action!
Participants will be able to recognize challenges the queer community faces in outdoor recreation,
more appropriately engage with LGBTQIA+ participants, and connect with others invested in creating a
meaningful shift toward LGBTQIA+ inclusive programming.

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.
