Sharing Your Workplace Story to Create Change

One of PFLAG’s deepest beliefs is that when we share our personal stories, we transform the conversation about LGBTQ+ equality from being about abstract rights, laws, and policies to being about real people. And while everyone has a story to tell, the question of how to share this story effectively—especially in the workplace—often goes unanswered.

This learning session will help participants identify their workplace stories about LGBTQ+ inclusion, use the building blocks of great stories to develop their narratives, get powerful story-sharing and communication skills, and have an opportunity to share their stories and receive peer feedback in a supportive environment. Session materials include a customized storytelling workbook.
