Connecting, Supporting, & Empowering LGBTQ Families in the DMV
The deadline for conference workshop proposal submissions is Friday, February 9, 2018. Each workshop time slot will be 75 to 90 minutes in length so please take that into consideration and plan accordingly.
Presenters are encouraged to focus on issues related to prospective LGBTQ+ parents, expecting LGBTQ+ parents, and LGBTQ+ parents and their children. We ask presenters to consider an interactive presentation format to allow for maximum participant engagement, such as round table discussions, facilitated panels, or question/answer sessions. Workshops should be reflective and inclusive of the diverse LGBTQ+ parenting community, including community members who identify as bisexual and transgender and people of color.
PLEASE NOTE: Please understand that submission of a workshop proposal does not guarantee its inclusion in the conference. All workshop proposals are subject to review by Rainbow Families. Rainbow Families reserves the right to request presenters to adjust their workshops to align with the conference's theme and tracks, to request presenters to collaborate with each other should multiple workshop proposals of the same topic be submitted, and to use it's discretion with regards to all workshop proposals submitted.
