Developing Future LGBT+ Leaders

February 26 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Leadership is about developing skills, knowledge and self-awareness; about feeling empowered to take action in one’s own life; and about positively influencing one’s environment.  Building strong youth leaders is core to creating communities where all LGBT+ youth and students can thrive and feel empowered.

This conference is aimed at teachers, youth workers, health and social care workers, parents/carers, students, allies and anyone with an interest in LGBT+ young people and developing leadership and inclusive environments.  It has a range of keynote speakers and workshops to enable workers and parents/carers to reflect on ways to support young people to become leaders in their own lives and be role models for others.

Topics include:
  • Keynote Speaker: Ruth Hunt, Chief Executive, Stonewall
  • Young People’s Voice
  • Coaching and mentoring LGBT+ young people and Creative Thinking
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Leadership through the Arts and Theatre
  • Presentation of SRE research with young LGBT+ people
  • Launch of Sheffield Trans Schools Pack

Free for Sheffield services!            Only £25.00 for external services!

Young peoples voice and influence is paramount to ensuring we are delivering the service in an appropriate way therefore we are holding a parallel leadership event for LGBT+ young people on 10 February – for details contact us at info@sayit.org.uk.  The outcomes from this event will be included within the conference.
