The purpose of the Unity through Diversity National Conference is to lift up the voices of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People of Color (LGBT POC), while promoting social justice, healthy sexuality, violence-free living, social activism and safe spaces. In Our Own Voices seeks proposals for active and engaging workshops and/or panels that address these topics. Culturally specific organizations are encouraged to apply!
Proposals to be considered for presentation at the National LGBT People of Color Health Conference must be submitted on the attached Proposal Submission Form. In accordance with the following guidelines. Proposals are submitted to: email@example.com. Handwritten proposals will not be accepted.
Each proposal must be related to one specific track. Please indicate whether the proposal is for a panel presentation or workshop. The proposal cannot include both.
The workshops are designed to serve as a 60-minute information-sharing and skills-building sessions. Each workshop will be limited to not more than three presenters. A panel can be submitted as a workshop as long as there is at least 10 minutes dedicated to an audience Q&A (Questions and Answers) section. Please indicate how your presentation will enhance knowledge and increase skills in the following areas: planning; development and implementation; evaluation; and/or political advocacy. Spanish-language workshops from native speaking presenters will be accepted for review.
Please utilize the checklist below as you work through the Proposal Submission process to ensure that you are properly following all guidelines.
