No one ever starts out perfect or unproblematic, and no one ever reaches the finish line on becoming a more inclusive, intersectional ally. Checking your privilege, being open to experiences and perspectives other than your own, and learning about different identities is a continual process. This workshop helps you along as you navigate the various stages of this process and your own personal journey.
In this workshop, participants work together to troubleshoot their way through specific roadblocks they are experiencing. Over the course of 3 hours, we workshop copy and/or images from their website, discuss social media strategies like hashtags, and collaboratively problem-solve so that participants walk away with solutions that they can apply immediately to their own business.
This workshop is perfect for those who have taken Part 1 or who already feel comfortable with the vocabulary of LGBTQ-inclusivity.
