In partnership with Transformation Journeys WorldWide, we're bringing you a special opportunity! Join us for a viewing party of North Carolina Center for Nonprofits' Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion series, followed by a discussion of the webinar's content and how it applies to your work and community. The discussion will be facilitated by Gabrielle Claiborne, Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Transformation Journeys Worldwide, and Maria Azuri, Director of Foundation Center South.


Does your organization want to learn more about how to effectively include members of the LGBTQIA community? Does everyone in your organization understand what all those letters mean? Could your nonprofit use support with best practices and creating an affirming culture for LGBTQIA colleagues and community members? Join Heather Branham, LCSW and Stephen Wiseman, LCSW of Just Conversations for the next webinar in the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits' Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion series.

In this webinar, you'll discover:

  • Up-to-date terminology and concepts related to the LGBTQIA community
  • Challenges facing LGBTQIA people
  • Ways to create inclusive and affirming organizational culture for people of all genders and sexual orientations.


Post-Webinar FC-S Community Discussion:


Please join us afterwards to continue and broaden our dialogue and understanding - expanding ways that different Atlanta-based professionals, individuals and varied agencies can continue to move forward to realizing a more inclusive environment for everyone.
