LGBT Leadership Institute Guidelines
The LGBT Leadership Institute program includes nine carefully curated sessions, often building upon prior sessions. Therefore, if selected, participants will be expected to attend all nine sessions as well as an orientation session to be scheduled in late August.
With advance notice, an individual may miss up to two classes. Missing any part of a class is equivalent to missing the entire class. A significant aspect of the program is getting to know and interacting with other members of the class. Being absent negatively impacts everyone in the program, not just the absentee. Three absences will disqualify a participant from attending the balance of the year and is non-refundable. Session dates, generally on the second Friday of each month, and times are listed below.
The fee to participate in the LGBT Leadership Institute is $1,500 for the entire program. A limited number of partial scholarships are available.
Early is on time. All sessions will begin at the stated time on the schedule. Participants are expected to be in the room ready to begin when the facilitator begins.
Using electronic devices to communicate is not allowed during session activities. There will be breaks where individuals can text, email, or make calls.
