Online gatherings are here to stay. While many of us are familiar with the mechanics of platforms like Zoom, how confident are we with making sure that online gatherings are a safe, comfortable and empowering experience for all participants? This session will show you how to interact with your participants in more constructive ways than just watching a face on-screen and wondering if they’re actually wearing trousers.
This training session is being run twice on Zoom. You can choose between Monday 12th October (7pm-8:30pm) or Wednesday 14th October (7pm-8:30pm). PDF of the PowerPoint slides for the effective online meetings training session.
The ongoing risks of Covid, fluctuating Government rules and temporary local area lockdowns mean that in some ways we are living through a time of greater anxiety and uncertainty for many people than full lockdown was. There are questions about safety, social distancing, and what future small group meetings will be legal. As we face several more months of fluctuating restrictions, this session will help you think about the best ways to support your LGBTI group members to cope with Covid uncertainties.

Events are important to LGBTI communities, both in terms of fostering a community spirit and sense of belonging and in terms of challenging discrimination and raising public awareness of LGBTI rights. With fluctuating Covid restrictions and a number of unknowns, how do we start thinking about future events such as LGBTI group meetings, conferences, training events, Prides and protests for the next several months? This session will help you plan successful community events in a complex and unpredictable year.
