EDUCATION & TRAINING
 

The Key to Education is Understanding

This is the basis of our educational outreach program. Through personal exposure, stories, and knowledge created from and by LGBTQ+ individuals, our organization offers a unique perspective that can help any organization better understand, affirm, and provide for the LGBTQ+ community.

Loudoun Business Allies

We have created a tailored training seminar for businesses as part of our Loudoun Business Allies program. Businesses can commit one or several individuals to receive information about retaining end recruiting employees, serving customers, and increasing sales to LGBTQ+ individuals. Trainings typically take only 30 minutes and we allow up to 30 minutes for Q&A sessions with our trainers. After each training, a business will receive our Business Welcome package complete with affirming door decal, table tent, and more.
