The LGBTQ+ Executive Directors Gathering offers a chance for people in the leadership seat at their organization to come together for mutual support and learning. At present, we are continuing to meet online. Being an Executive Director (ED) can be lonely and difficult at times—our work plates are overflowing and we are holding a great deal of responsibility. As LGBTQ+ leaders, we face an additional set of challenges ranging from discrimination by the broader community to tricky politics within the LGBTQ+ community. Let’s come together to connect, build relationships and support each other.
Who Should Attend?
This gathering is limited to nonprofit EDs in Washington state who identify as LGBTQ+ and/or lead an LGBTQ+ community organization. Please help us spread the word to people in these roles. Because the role of staff leader is unique, we request that people not currently in this role do not attend. We do welcome people serving in an equivalent role to ED, e.g. co-director, artistic or managing director, leader of a fiscally sponsored project, or similar. We will strive to create a welcoming, confidential space for people of all races, backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities. This gathering will not be recorded.
Who Is Organizing This Gathering?
There are two standing support/networking groups for LGBTQ+ EDs in Seattle and in Pierce County. The two groups saw value in broadening the circle further to include LGBTQ+ EDs statewide. Nonprofit Association of Washington and the Washington State LGBTQ Commission are co-hosts. Following our first online gathering in February 2021, we have committed to convene the group twice a year.
