Event description

Description

The Equality Project in partnership with Mercer Australia presents the Leadership Training Academy, a 2-day leadership and media training institute for LGBTIQ advocates, change-makers and emerging leaders.

This is an advocacy training program with a focus on media and leadership skills. We are thrilled to announce that GLAAD will be providing the media training.

DAY 1

Global advocacy and leadership training. More details to be announced soon.

DAY 2

The GLAAD Media Institute provides activist, spokesperson, and media engagement training and education for LGBTIQ and allied community members and organizations desiring to deepen their media impact. Using the best practices perfected by GLAAD from more than 30 years of experience leveraging media to create change, the program aims to train the next generation of advocates to accelerate acceptance for LGBTIQ people, as well as other marginalised communities.

Participants will understand how to get a message of inclusion and acceptance across effectively in the mainstream media narrative about the LGBTIQ community. Equipped with GLAAD’s Accelerating Acceptance data, GLAAD will work with you to reach and teach the "movable middle" about the LGBTIQ community through a personal lens, yours. Topics include LGBTIQ acceptance, understanding media mentality, speaking to your audience, messaging and framing the issue, social media basics, and interview techniques.

On Wednesday night, there will be a networking event to meet some of the leading LGBTIQ rights organisations in the world - the Human Rights Campaign, Stonewall and GLAAD.

More details soon.
