OUT IN FRONT NEW YORK is an initiative to cultivate the next generation of LGBTQ leaders—particularly those interested in nonprofit board service. Over the course of several day-long training sessions, participants begin to build meaningful relationships with one another while developing the vision, skills, and confidence needed to guide and sustain the organizations in their care. Likewise, as a recruitment pipeline, Out In Front connects talented LGBTQ volunteers with local boards that are seeking new members.
New York is one of the largest, most energetic cities in the world. As such, it’s home to an equally vibrant community of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people. This is perhaps most evident in the great spectrum of nonprofits that represent their lives, their interests, their needs, and their families.
For decades, under strong leadership, these organizations and institutions have been pillars in the community, ever diligent in education, advocacy, and the provision of resources, safe space, and services. And now, with tremendous progress made, the torch is being passed to emerging leaders who must carry the LGBTQ Movement forward.
