BTTA Foundational Leadership

Initiate, collaborate, lead.

BTTA Foundational Leadership is based on our original “Leadership Training Academy” initiative and is our initial training ground for change-makers, advocates and emerging leaders in the LGBTIQ+ community. This is a 2-day training program that will help build the core skills and techniques to effect positive cultural change.

We have compiled and developed an exciting curriculum that includes the world-class GLAAD Media Institute and a new module we have developed that encourages reflection on your own leadership skill set, individual power and create connections with others to exercise greater influence through collaboration.

Who SHOULD attend?

Foundational Leadership is designed for LGBTIQ+ advocates and emerging community leaders as well as professionals from any sector or industry. You should attend if:

  • You want to explore what it means to be an authentic and inclusive LGBTIQ+ role model in your community or organisation.

  • You want to hone your skills as a spokesperson and find out how to engage with the media effectively and tell powerful stories that move the hearts and minds of the people and communities that matter.

  • You want to expand your network and collaborate in a meaningful way with other passionate advocates.

  • We welcome allies who are working in the LGBTIQ+ community to participate.

There was a fantastic diversity of thought in the room. The session about media engagement was absolutely outstanding and a real privilege to attend!
