This programme will give you the tools, confidence and network to advance LGBT inclusion in your organisation.
We all have different working patterns and learn in different ways. We’ll be delivering four kinds of content so you can design a programme that suits your work and helps address the challenges you face. You'll also have access to most of this content right up until the end of September so you can revisit things you missed or learn something new.
At the bottom of the page you can find out more about each content type. Please note that you'll have acccess to all five workshops and coffee breaks but, as they're highly facilitated sessions, you'll have to select one knowledge sharing session to attend.

These are 1-hour interactive sessions hosted on Zoom. You’ll hear from Stonewall experts and other leading organisations. We'll also guide you through exercises to help you share ideas and create a practical action plan. After the live session we’ll upload a pre-record of the content and explainers of the exercises in case you weren’t able to join us.
These are highly facilitated small group sessions. We’ll be joined by a subject matter expert from the Stonewall team and a facilitator who’ll guide you through exercises to gather best practice and share experiences. After the session you’ll get a roundup of the information and ideas shared. Please note that as spaces on these sessions are limited, you’ll only be able to book one of the five sessions.
This is your chance to hear from different experts on a range of topics. Each week we’ll share a video interview where one of our network of event contributors will share their experience and expertise to help inform and inspire your work.
Community has always been central to working towards LGBT equality. While we can’t meet face to face right now, we’re hoping these coffee breaks will help us stay connected. They’re informal sessions, we’ll be joined by a speaker and you’ll have chance to ask questions and discuss the topic we’re tackling.
Accessing the content
All content will be hosted on the event portal. Once you register for the event, you’ll receive a link to log in.
Each week we’ll send you a reminder of what’s coming up that week and we’ll let you know when bookings open for the knowledge sharing sessions.
Within the portal we’ll use tools such as Mural, Zoom and Sli.do to make sure the content is engaging and interactive. If you’ve not used these tools before there will be plenty of guidance available.
The portal is live now and will stay open until the end of September. Before we start delivering content on 16 June there’s a selection of exclusive new resources themed around adapting to the COVID-19 crisis which you can read. You’ll also be able to download the event app to start networking with other delegates.
