This is done through sharing our stories, providing education about the history of and vocabulary in the Queer community, as well as facts and information about the community relevant to a wide variety of participants. Participants will also learn about ways to be better allies and advocates for members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Program Learning Objectives:

- Tips and suggestions for being better allies and advocates for the LGBTQ+ community.
- A greater understanding of issues affecting the LGBTQ+ Community.
This program is ideal for: Nonprofits, supervisors, teachers, medical professionals, and community members wanting to create a more inclusive community.
This virtual professional development is available to current Zionsville Chamber of Commerce members (and employees of member businesses) at no cost.
