Leadership Training Academy

In order to achieve meaningful social change we need to foster the training of a new generation of LGBTIQ+ advocates to lead the conversation, reshape the narrative, and ultimately, change the culture.

The Equality Project’s training program is called the Leadership Training Academy or LTA.

LTA is a specialised leadership and media engagement training program for LGBTIQ+ change-makers and emerging community leaders who want to build the core skills and techniques to effect positive social change.

In 2019 we are excited to announce the following LTA programs:

LTA Foundation

This is a 2-day training program for emerging community leaders and advocates. We have compiled an exciting curriculum that includes programs from some of the largest LGBTIQ+ rights organisations in the world. These include the world-class GLAAD Media Institute and the Stonewall LGBTIQ Role Models program.

This program is delivered in the following cities: Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane & Canberra. In 2019, we are looking at bringing it to the Northern Territory and Tasmania. Dates to be announced soon.

LTA Transformative Leadership

This is a new intensive training program for LGBTIQ+ leaders that we will launch in 2019. Delivered over two parts, Module 1 is now confirmed in three cities. Find out more.


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