What is the current landscape of local and national LGBTQ policy and research in education and counseling? How do LGBTQ educators, counselors, and therapists navigate coming out in their workplace?  

What does it look like to teach or provide therapy in ways that counter homophobia, heterosexism, and transphobia, and how do you deal with pushback when advocating for LGBTQ rights and inclusion in schools and clinical settings? 

Join together with a group of faculty, community agencies, educators, counselors, and therapists to discuss these questions and gather resources to facilitate coalition-building in your organization.
