Learn Strategies for Your Community to be Safer, More LGBT-Friendly…
Never has there been a leadership conference to share, network and learn strategies to create safer, more LGBT inclusive fraternity and sorority communities. The Out & Greek National Leadership Conference is the first of its kind for undergraduate fraternity and sorority leaders and is sponsored by the landmark Lambda 10 Project, an educational initiative of Campus Pride. The Lambda 10 Project founded in 1995 works to heighten the visibility of LGBT members of the college fraternity and sorority by serving as a clearinghouse for educational resources and materials related to sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.
SPECIAL TRACK FOR ADVISORS/STAFF – Fraternity & Sorority Advisors and National Staff are encouraged to attend with student leaders for a special track designed specifically for the professional development needs of chapter advisors, campus advisors/staff, administrators and general headquarters staff. The track will coincide with the leadership conference and allow for select presentations and discussion forums open only to advisors/staff. The goal of the special track is to create a safe space for learning, questioning and preparing advisors/staff for challenges surrounding LGBT issues and fraternity and sorority life.
Please refer to the SCHEDULE for the conference general kenotes, events and activities. Details are subject to change. The deadline for submitting a workshop proposal is Friday, September 26, 2008. Below are highlights specific to the Special Advisor/Staff Track.
