LGBT Role Models programme

A programme to explore what it means to be an authentic and inclusive LGBT role model in the workplace

Individuals make change happen

The Stonewall one-day LGBT Role Models programme gives individuals the opportunity to explore what it means to be a role model and the space to identify how they are going to create an inclusive environment for everyone. 


What the programme offers

  • Insight into and understanding of what it means to be yourself
  • Understanding what it means to be an LGBT role model and ways to ‘step up’
  • Active listening skills and techniques for having productive conversations
  • Practical ways to step up as an LGBT role model
  • Increased motivation and confidence to be a visible and influential role model
  • A network of LGBT peers from across a range of sectors and communities


Who can attend

Stonewall’s LGBT Role Models programme is designed for LGBT professionals at any level from any sector or industry.

Stonewall is looking for a diverse range of participants for its programmes, especially those that are currently underrepresented at application stage. We want to hear from LGBT professionals from a range of ethnic backgrounds, people of faith, disabled people, women and non-binary people – and those at the intersections of these identities.
