Workshop - LGBTQ+ Experiences: Telling our stories

Pride month is a great opportunity to share our stories. 

We know the impact that sharing our stories and experiences has on building empathy and driving change. Especially during Pride month many of us will be asked to share our experiences in the workplace and beyond. There is huge power in sharing parts of our journeys with others, but there can also be a personal toll in being so open at work and in sharing difficult experiences. In this workshop we'll explore different ways to tell your story, the impact it can have and how you ensure you're taking care of yourself in the process. 

Join us at 10:30 am on 23 June for a two-hour interactive workshop hosted on Zoom.
