The Roanoke Diversity Center's Speakers Bureau is a group that appears at speaking engagements with the goal of educating and empowering our LGBTQ+ community, as well as the greater community around us.
Our goals are to increase LGBTQ+ visibility, provide LGBTQ+ sensitivity, educate, empower, demonstrate the importance of being a heterosexual and/or cisgender ally, and question larger social issues.
When and where? Join us and speak on your own time! You'll join a flexible team and speak only at engagements that you can and want to participate in. We provide LGBTQ+ panels, presentations, and discussions to schools, businesses, organizations, and more!
Why? We think its's important to take charge of our stories and do our part to further education in our communities.
Do you have experience being on a speakers bureau, or maybe you are just interested and want to know more?
Please contact the Roanoke Diversity Center at Admin@RoanokeDiversityCenter.com to find out more! You may also request to be added to the special Facebook page for this group.
We’d love to hear from you in regards to this new community outreach and educational opportunity.
