A Conversation and Q&A on Becoming a Better LGBTQ+ Ally

This Q&A with 25+ year field expert Kryss Shane offers participants an engaging opportunity to self-reflect on what each of us are already doing and learn what other action we can take to support our LGBTQ+ colleagues. Kryss will be joined in conversation by Equity & Impact Consultant Mira Stern. At whatever level of power and type of work you do, there is always more to do. This is the opportunity to come together to learn from one another and to ultimately walk away feeling empowered to do better and support the LGBTQ+ community.
