Would you like to develop your leadership skills with other LGBTIQ people?
This is a commitment to two weekend retreats for developing leadership skills and of support, stories, fun, creativity, learning and safe sharing.
- 1st Retreat 30 June – 2 July
- 2nd Retreat 1 – 3 December
Join Daniel Witthaus (Pride & Prejudice, NICHE Australia) and Sharon Jones (Connect4Life) for a 3-day LGBTIQ Leadership Retreat. Participants will draw on their own experiences and learn from other lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and (LGBTIQ) people to improve their ability to be a local leader and make a difference in their own communities.
The focus will be on personal stories, overcoming resistance and taking action in their communities. Whether you are completely new or have been a leader for decades, we look forward to hearing your stories, learning what works and discovering what’s important for your community.
