QUEER LEADERSHIP VIRTUAL SUMMIT
10 & 11 May 2023

Supporting Queer Leaders in their roles as change-agents, during Pride and beyond.

We know that being a visible Queer Leader during Pride season requires increased energy, awareness and resilience. It comes with added pressures, responsibility and often hidden personal costs. We know this from our own personal experiences of burnout, and the countless conversations we’ve had with clients and our community. That’s why wellbeing and mental health have to become a priority on the journey of any Queer Leader if we want to make long-lasting impact and change within our organisations and communities; during Pride and beyond. 

LISTEN & LEARN
PAUSE & CONNECT
DISCUSS & GET CURIOUS

Our annual Pride & Beyond Summit offers an exciting mix of workshops and panel discussions; all designed to equip LGBTQ+ leaders with tools and knowledge for building a more inclusive, healthier, and sustainable Queer Future.
