Network Group Masterclass

LGBT network groups are an organisation’s strongest resource for inclusion work. However, leading them is a demanding role.

This one-day masterclass event on 28 June in Birmingham will give you the leadership skills, practical knowledge and supportive network you need to succeed.

From providing peer support, to influencing organisation-wide decisions, holding a leadership role in a network group requires a range of skills. This is your chance to join over 100 professionals from other leading organisations to learn and share ways to ensure your network group is a real force for change.

The venue will be a conference centre in central Birmingham. Details of this will be shared in Joining Instructions issued to delegates. If you need to know sooner, please get in touch on and we can provide you with further information.

  • Attend a morning session designed by the team behind Stonewall's flagship Leadership programme
  • Understand your leadership style and explore how to overcome challenges you're facing
