While many businesses and agencies place rainbow stickers on their walls and make statements of being “LGBTQ+ Friendly”, this workshop will take you steps further.  We must go beyond being “friendly” and be supportive and affirm the identities of all the patrons walking through our doors.  Building upon earlier workshops on understanding the LGBTQ+ community; Participants will be provided ways to use their knowledge to build affirming and supportive spaces within their agency for the LGBTQ+ Community.   


Elizabeth Munsky is an LGBTQIA+ Advocacy Consultant with over 10 years of LGBTQ+ advocacy, education, policy and program development experience.  Elizabeth specializes in policy analysis and program development for local and city governmental agencies.  Throughout her career she has assisted local public schools, tech industry leaders, small non-profits, local and city government agencies of all sizes, and everywhere in-between; all with the goal of pushing the needle of progress, support and affirmation for LGBTQIA+ people forward.  Currently she works as the Executive Director of LGBTQIA+ Affairs at the New York City Department of Correction.  As a self-defined educator and experiential learner, Elizabeth hopes that she can learn as much for those attending her workshops as they do from her.
